2020 Scholar Quiz Dates & Request For Volunteers


It's that time of year again!


The 2020 Mira Costa Scholar Quiz will begin on Tuesday, March 10th and finish with the Grand Final on Wednesday, March 18th. 


The Scholar Quiz brings together teachers, students, administrators, community members, alumni and parents in one of Mira Costa's signature and most beloved annual events. 

This six-day jeopardy-like fast-paced competition engages more than 250 players on four-person teams in a single elimination tournament, with the champions crowned in an all-school event. The competition involves questions from all academic disciplines with a sprinkling of pop-culture and current events.  Sign-ups are first come/first served and the students themselves put their teams together.


To make it work, we rely on 100+ parent, teacher and community volunteers to help run the daily matches as Readers, Flag Judges and Score Keepers.  


So if you are willing and available, we'd love to have your help! Please follow this link : Volunteer Registration

Scholar Quiz Team Entry will be opened later in February.


A huge thank you to the PTSA for enabling us to continue this treasured annual Costa tradition and to Study Hut for their continued sponsorship and support.
