College Bowl

Held at every NAD Conference, College Bowl is a spirited academic bowl style event that brings together deaf contestants from top colleges and universities serving deaf and hard of hearing students. Teams of four students from each school vie for the coveted trophy and scholarships.

A biennial tradition since 1988, the energetic College Bowl competition brings together young and smart deaf college students for a lively competition that spans over four days with preliminary and final matches. College Bowl players have become lawyers, scientists, teachers and important advocates of the deaf and hard of hearing community. They exemplify what it takes to be an intellectual leader in the community, and the exciting competition draws over 1,000 audience members at the final match!
