CatholicQuiz.com is a resource that provides excellent Q + A referenced to the Catechism and the Bible in interactive quizzes and games directed at children in a fun and exciting online format. This resource is perfect for the “Catechism Challenge” found in week 5 of the program campaign manuals. CatholicQuiz.com is organized primarily for schools, so each boy is given a unique identification and password to login as a “student” of a “class” (the program: Father & Son etc). Once logged in the boys are presented with games concentrated on different aspects of Catholicism. As each boy plays he can track his performance and the totals of his class. As “teacher” (Club President) you are able to track each boy’s individual performance as well as all “class” totals. It is suggested that you provide the login information to the program directors to allow them to track their programs without going through you every time. This system allows the boys to play at home as well as during the club meetings (week 5) and still have their performance tracked and to earn points for their squad.

Week 5 Competition Set up squads to compete in week 5 of the campaign 4 Let each squad play enough rounds to settle any ties. Optional: The points for each squad can be tracked all year long, so subtract the previous accrued points each time you use this competition. An excel spreadsheet is available for this purpose on the Club President Resource Center online.
As the year progresses, the boys’ point totals will increase dramatically, but the relative ratios between the boys’ scores will remain consistent. You can choose to simply add the totals year to date, or use the excel sheet to keep track of how many points the boys earn each individual campaign. For the final week of each campaign and right before the awards night, prepare by tabulating points for the boys’ performance on CatholicQuiz.com by squad. Total the CQ-IQ points for each squad by adding together the total points for each boy in that squad. You can have a campaign CQ-IQ special award, for the boy that has the most CQ-IQ points.
