After taking a year off, the 11th annual Southwest Student Jeopardy Bowl returns and will be held at the Costa Mesa Hilton on Friday October 29th, 2021. All Universities and Colleges are invited to bring a team of 3 currently enrolled undergraduate students to answer questions on categories including anatomy, biomechanics, cardiovascular physiology, EKG, and exercise prescription, to name a few. The format will be like that of the longstanding television show, Jeopardy, with single jeopardy questions being easier than double jeopardy questions, and a final jeopardy question being the most difficult. All questions will have a dollar amount associated with the answer, and the team with the highest total at the end of the night will be victorious.
We’re looking forward to having more Universities participate, resulting in the “best and brightest” representing the Southwest Chapter at the 2022 ACSM annual meeting in San Diego (our home turf!). Registration is paid for by the National ACSM and the Regional Chapter will contribute funds for travel, lodging, and food. Each University is also expected to contribute a portion of the cost. Faculty should identify a team of complementary members who can work together in answering questions. Each University is encouraged to bring as many students as possible to support their team, wear their school colors, and cheer them on to victory!
Registration is available now:
All Universities interested in competing must complete the above form before 5:00pm PDT September 24th, 2021, so we can make necessary arrangements for the room and audio-visual equipment. Although each institution in the region can submit the names for up to two teams, institutions are only guaranteed one spot. The more Universities that participate, the better the selection process will be, and the stronger the team we send forward to National.
In order to compete, each team must also have a professional representative or graduate student available to serve as a judge during the competition. Contact MAL-Abstracts and Awards, James Navalta, PhD, email@example.com if you have any questions.
