Dayspring Assembly of God's Junior Bible Quiz team is raising fund to compete next month at the JBQ National Festival near Dallas.
To help with costs for the trip the team is hosting two "Harlan Chicken Dinner" fundraiser Friday  and May 31 from 4 to 7 p.m. at Dayspring, 17360 N. Dixie Hwy.
Pull up in the car and drive away with a chicken dinner for $8.
It includes a half barbecue chicken, potatoes, green beans and the utensils. Cash or check only.
Team members are Shani Estep, Luke Kobylski, Johanna Slembarski, Madison Wilkerson and Annie Valantine.
They finished 10th earlier this month at the Great Lakes Regional Competition, which was held at Dayspring.
Individually, Shani earned a sixth-place finish. Their team placement qualified them to compete June 6-8 at the JBQ National Festival.
Their team, Epic, finished with a 10-9 record, averaging 170 points per round.
Not only do the members prepare by memorizing Bible verses, they also have to "buzz in" first on a question in order to answer it.
Prior to the regional competition, the team ranked first in their league with a 23-0 record, competing against other Northwest Ohio teams. A round of JBQ competition consists of 20 questions of varying difficulty. The harder the question, the more it is worth.
At the national event they will compete with over 80 teams in 15 rounds the first day, then nine rounds the final day.
The last time Dayspring's JBQ team completed at nationals was 2010 where the team was 14th in the nation.
