Posted: March 12th, 2010

On March 10, UMass Forestry students were again victorious, winning the New England Quiz Bowl competition defeating teams from UNH and Paul Smith's College at the 90th annual meeting of the New England Society of American Foresters (NESAF) in Nashua, New Hampshire. The UMass team previously won the Quiz Bowl in 2009 at the NESAF meeting in Portland, Maine, and successfully defended their title in 2010. The Quiz Bowl competition is modeled after the Jeopardy game show, with student teams competing to correctly answer questions pertaining to forestry, wildlife, and other natural resource topics. UMass team members Justin Renaud, Robert Herrick, and Jeff Hutchins responded quickly and confidently with correct answers resulting in the victory.
