Where: Southern New Hampshire University, Manchester

Changes to competition format this year:

In years past, all 10 of the categories have been multiple choice. Each team submits their answer using an electronic clicker system, concealing their answers to all except the computer.   

This year we are mixing things up a bit.  The Rounds 1-8 will be done as described above.  New to this year- we are adding a Final Round, where the top two team will go head-to-head to compete for 1st and 2nd place. These two teams will be invited up on stage and 1st place team will go first.  They will be asked an open-ended question and have 30 seconds to answer.  A correct answer wins them a point.  An incorrect answer sends the question to the 2nd place team, who will have 15 seconds to answer, for a chance to "steal" the point.  Then the 2nd place team will get the next question.  The round will continue like this until one team gets to 5 points.  

NOTE: We will not be covering the Great Decisions category, listed in the Study Guide on page 17. Please skip over this page when you are preparing your team!
