HHS NEAR THE TOP IN NATIONAL QUIZ CONTEST (VIDEO)

Quiz bowl coach and history teacher Bill Murphy writes: Greetings! The following are the results of the Fall Knowledge Master Open which tested school teams from across the country in the rapid recall of information. Each team used a single computer at its home school to answer 200 multiple-choice questions. Accuracy and quickness both earned points.

HHS finished 42nd out of 678 schools (top 6%) in the nation; 8th out of 150 schools (top 5%) with enrollment between 500 and 1,000; 4th out of 28 schools (top 14%) in New England; and 1st out of 3 teams in New Hampshire. HHS finished ahead of all participating schools in 23 states.
