Varsity Quiz is an annual competition in high schools in the Clark County School District sponsored by Kiwanis Club of Las Vegas.
The VQ program is patterned after a high school program that was being sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Greater Anaheim. In 1969 a delegation from that club convinced the leadership of the Kiwanis Club of Las Vegas to sponsor a similar program in Clark County.
