2013 to Present Season[edit]

Beginning in the 2012-2013 season, Super Quiz was no longer given a resource guide of its own. Instead, the Super Quiz event was a relay event with a mix of six events (art, economics, language and literature, music, science, and social science), and the written test was no longer used.
