VCU honored with National Quiz Championship title
(WTVR) – Basketball isn’t the only thing VCU excels at. It turns out they’re good at quizzes too.
According to Reuters, VCU will become the 2011 Division I Undergraduate Quiz Bowl Champions of the National Academic Quiz Tournaments (NAQT).
You might be asking, “Why 2011?”
It’s because Harvard is going to be stripped of four National Quiz Championship titles. The quiz organizers tell Reuters that they found one student previewing a part of a question that was going to be asked in the tournament.
It turns out he was also working with the NAQT as a question writer for high-school level contests. He has since been terminated from that position.
The student has denied any wrongdoing.
