Is your school or church considering or planning its own Bible Bowl Competition event? If so, we have good news!
Bible IQ is sharing all of it's past Bible Bowl event materials completely free to help make your Bible Bowl event turnkey and pain-free. We call it our Bible Bowl program, but it's essentially a Bible Bowl "kit" for you to successfully and seamlessly plan and execute your own Bible Bowl event. If interested, we will even setup your own private school/church Bible Bowl page, including "co-branding" with your logo, on our website. Again, all this is free to your school/church/organization.
What is a "Bible Bowl"?
A Bible Bowl can be either team-based or individual-based, so this decision is up to your organization. If you elect to go the team route, please note the typical team composition is 3-5 individuals. Bible IQ's Bible Bowl competitions are comprised of both "Bible Trivia" questions and "Bible Verse" memorization; but again, your organization may choose to include both or focus on only one of these two categories. [NOTE: All Bible trivia questions and Bible verses for the Bible Bowl are provided towards the bottom portion of this page.]
A Bible Bowl can be designed for all children and youth. In other words, Kindergarten through 12th grade! Bible IQ has historically created separate Bible Bowl competitions by age division as follows:
> Primary (7-10 years or "elementary" school)
> Junior (11-14 years or "middle" school)
> Senior (15-18 years or "high" school)
Your organization may choose to do a separate Bible Bowl by grade level (e.g., 3rd grade, 5th grade, middle school, etc.). The individual Bible Bowl "competitions" is completely up to the organization.
For an example of a flyer, prizes, registration, and more please refer to Bible IQ's Bible Bowl event page, which is located under our "Bible e-Learning Programs" menu.
It is our opinion (and we hope you agree) that a Bible Bowl competition is a youth-enriching, community-uniting, and Christ-centered event that promotes and celebrates the learning and memorizing of God's Word in a fun, innovative, and game-changing way!
Bible Bowl Rules
The “Bible Bowl” Competition will consist of both Bible Trivia questions and Bible Verse recitation. Each contestant will have 10 seconds to answer the “Bible Trivia” question, and each contestant will have 10 seconds to begin reciting the “Bible Verse.” Each contestant will begin play by reciting 3 trivia questions and 3 Bible verses (collectively, the “1st Round”). Assuming there are greater than 10 contestants then only the “Top 10” contestants, based on total accumulated points, will remain competing. Next, an additional round of 3 trivia questions and 3 Bible verses will be played, and the winners (i.e., 1st through 10th place) will be determined based on the players total accumulated points. If two or more players are tied a “lightening round” will be played to determine final winners. SCORING SYSTEM | BIBLE TRIVIA QUESTIONS: > 2 points for correct answer. BIBLE VERSE RECITATIONS: > 3 points if 0-1 mistakes (miss a word, etc.) > 2 points if 2-3 mistakes (miss a word, etc.) > 1 point if recite the "gist" of the verse (the main idea)
