The Division of Outreach sponsors academic competitions throughout the year to bring bright high school students to the Oxford campus.  The annual University of Mississippi Brain Brawl, an academic quiz bowl competition, will be held on Saturday, November 17th, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.  UM faculty and staff are needed to serve as judges or moderators for three time slots: the morning session (from 8 a.m. to noon), the afternoon session (from 12:30 to 5:00 p.m.) and all day (from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.).

If you are new to Ole Miss, judges determine correct answers to quiz bowl questions when discrepancies arise and monitor teams during the competition to ensure adherence to tournament guidelines.  Moderators read questions during the competition and recognize the schools and contestants before answers are given.  Complete information is provided to all volunteers prior to the tournament.  A vounteer training session will be held for first-timers the week of the event.

If you can help with this fall's Brain Brawl, contact Director of Pre-College Programs Cass Dodgen at or (662) 915-6614.  Please specify the time slot and role you would prefer.
