Illinois /IESA Scholastic Bowl

Dear IESA Clients,

We have appreciated serving you these past 6 years.

However, as of July 1, 2022, we are no longer the official writer for the IESA State Scholastic Bowl Series.

The new State Series writer is Reinstein Quizbowl. Dave Reinstein is a longtime Illinois educator, successful Scholastic Bowl coach, and a good writer and person.

Because of a computer issue, we do not have the 2022 IESA State Series questions available. (With a new writer, questions from the old writer are less useful anyway. But you may contact the IESA office, and you can tell them that I authorize the set to be distributed for free if they still have it.)

As a courtesy to a new vendor, we ask that you contact Reinstein first for 2022-23 regular season questions before contacting us. We have been told that Reinstein is only writing 15 regular-season games, so please use those first if at all possible (as we are writing fewer games than in past years).

If you need more than his 15 games, or if he cannot supply you for some other reason, go ahead and contact us. We will be creating 15 new question sets your schools have not heard (and still have our records of who has heard which past sets), so you should be OK. We will try this without late fees at first, but if the late rush gets crazy, we may have to reinstate late fees. (Please give us at least a week lead time, so that 400 schools don’t each contact us the day before they start).

You will need to *download, save* and *then** fill out our order form, following the instructions and initialing the Coach’s Commitments page at the end before emailing it to us.

For credit card orders, **fill out the order form above FIRST** and email it to us as directed. Then use the PayPal cart below. The first line of the address should be the name and city of your school. **Ensure the e-mail address you give PayPal is where you want your materials emailed**.

Please use the order form above **before ordering games below.**

If paying by credit card with the PayPal cart, the “quantity” comes up after clicking Add to Cart, so put the number you want there. **We still need your order form above** before we can send any games.

Please phone about your order only if you have questions about games unused from previous years, or if your first game is less than a week from today.
