The 2015 VHSL State Championship was held on 28 February 2015 at William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia, and was the eighteenth iteration of the VHSL Scholastic Bowl state tournament. 24 teams, the top two teams from each regional tournament, competed in six size classifications of four teams each. Questions were provided by HSAPQ for the sixth year.


The top two teams from each conference tournament advanced to the eight-team regional. The top two teams from the regional then advanced to the state championship.

Tournament Format

Each match consisted of a round of fifteen tossups, ten bounceback "directed questions" for each team, and a concluding phase of fifteen more tossups. Tossups were scored in the normal quizbowl way. Directed questions were worth 10 points each and functioned similarly to a single-part bonus, but their reading was not correlated to answering tossups.

The four teams in each of the six classes competed against each other in a three-round round-robin; this was the second time the format was used, after its introduction in the 2014 VHSL Realignment.
