The Missouri Quizbowl Alliance invites all MSHSAA-registered high school Scholar Bowl teams to participate in the thirteenth annual NAQT Missouri Qualifier on February 29, 2020.
As one of MOQBA's flagship events, this tournament regularly features a diverse field of teams from throughout Missouri, recognizing the state's top teams for national tournament qualification in a fast-paced championship atmosphere.
Columbia College (Main Campus)
1001 Rogers Street
Columbia, MO 65216
Games consist of twenty tossups worth ten points each followed by non-rebounding bonuses worth up to thirty points. Tossups will feature 15 point "powers" and -5 point "negs".
The tournament will use the 2020 NAQT Division II Collegiate Sectionals question set, which is more challenging than NAQT's regular season Invitational Series questions but a step below the difficulty of NAQT's High School National Championship Tournament questions.
While we do not believe this set will be assigned to any other high school tournament in Missouri, it is your responsibility to ensure that your entire team has not previously heard any part of NAQT's 2020 Collegiate Sectionals question sets and will not compete in any other tournaments using this set. In particular, any students wishing to participate in this tournament must not staff or otherwise observe any of NAQT's Sectional Championship Tournaments for collegiate teams. Question set assignments are subject to change at any time; a list of tournaments known to be using this set is available on NAQT's website.
Each school in attendance will receive a printed copy of the questions after the tournament.
Registration will open on Wednesday, December 4. Teams are encouraged to complete this short form to express interest in the tournament. Coaches who complete this form will receive a reminder email shortly before registration opens. This tournament historically fills extremely quickly, so we strongly recommend that you express interest now and register as soon as possible once registration opens.
More details about schedule, pricing, and other logistics will be released on this page before registration opens.
