According to the NAQT website, https://www.naqt.com/ms/middle-school-quiz-bowl.html
"At the middle school level, quiz bowl is a competitive, academic, interscholastic activity for which players attend periodic practices and then represent their school at tournaments. Those tournaments may be based on the school's athletic conference, school district, county or state; they may also be open to all corners.
Quiz bowl questions range over the entire spectrum of the middle school curriculum and also include a certain number of current events, sports, and popular culture. The matches feature a blend of individual competition and team collaboration, since no individual player is likely to be an expert in all subject areas. Quiz bowl can reinforce classroom lessons and also encourage players to go beyond their assignments to master other areas as well.
The two major aspects to a school's quiz bowl program are practicing and competing at tournaments."
