The 6th Bacolod History Quiz to be participated by 23 combined public and private secondary schools in the city will be held on October 12, 2009 at 4PM at the Northwing Event Centre of SM City Event Center

Initiated by Bacolod Councilor Jocelle Batapa-Sigue in 2004, the quiz competition has been conducted annually in time for Masskara Festival celebration to highlight the observance of the Charter Inauguration Day of Bacolod every October 19.

Since its inception, Aksyon Radyo Bacolod and various private companies and civic organizations have been actively supporting the competition. The participating schools are entitled to be represented by a team of two students. Questions revolve around the history of Bacolod and Negros Occidental as well as current events and general information.

The Bacolod History Quiz aims to encourage schools to instill in their students the consciousness about and interest in the historical facts about the city as well as of current issues.
