A QUIZ BOWL organized by the Silliman University Campus Ambassadors (SUCCA) held at Robinsons last Nov. 11 amused both
contestants and audience with its unique contest style.
Reynan Krystoffer King Sy and Korina Gretta Nuñez, organizers of the quiz bowl, said that they thought of making it “extraordinary” to not bore the audience.
“It’s one way of promoting Silliman through the SU history questions,” Sy said.
The contest included a four-phase question challenge unlike the usual question and answer pattern.
First was the “Four Pics Guess the Word” based on the popular game “Four Pics One Word.”
It was followed by the “Food and Riddle Challenge” where one representative from each of the competing organizations had to
answer riddles after going through three different stations. There, they had to eat four cheese breads, five level three tempuras and three glasses of buko juice.
Next was the “Silliman Timeline.” Contestants were required to pin photos related to SU (events, structures, people, etc.) onto a board and group them together according to their corresponding years of occurrence.
Lastly was the quiz bowl proper where participants had to answer twenty questions about SU. The Silliman Junior Business Executives (SJBE) bested fifteen organizations and bagged the “Ultimate Silliman Quiz Bowl”
“We are so happy. It was fun and fulfilling knowing all about Silliman
University. We thought that we’d lose in the second phase because it
was so hard but here we are,” Jason Capundag SJBE representative said.
The History Political Science Society and Amihang Mindanao Sillimanians won second and third respectively.
