    Very nice project! I'm an Ontario teacher and I had my Computer Studies students build similar systems for our school Reach team. Works very well.

    I wouldn't worry about the nested FOR loops at the beginning of the loop block.
    Just do a digital read for each button. Start off with a boolean 'buzzIn' set to true, allowing players to buzz in. If a button goes high, set a flag 'buzzIn' to false, Have a dedicated button that resets 'buzzIn' to true for the next player to buzz in as need. Once you get it working, you can use Serial.write commands to send data to a graphical processing app and you can then keep score, display the player/team names etc. Not terribly difficult to do. Bonne chance! Check out www.hausOfPayne.weebly.com/arduino and you can get my introductory course document. The last activity demonstrates how to set up serial communication between your Arduino and a Processing Application.
