The MOQBA Award for Outstanding Student Involvement was presented to Raj Paul and Moses Schindler of Ladue Horton Watkins High School in 2018, for reviving the Ladue Invitational Spring Tournament question set.
The mission of the Missouri Quizbowl Alliance is to provide opportunities for high-quality academic competition throughout the state of Missouri. As part of that mission, the Missouri Quizbowl Alliance seeks to recognize outstanding involvement by students who work to improve the game of quizbowl in this state.
Raj Paul and Moses Schindler, working with the Ladue Horton Watkins Academic Team, revived and head edited the Ladue Invitational Spring Tournament (LIST) VI, a high-quality question set written for the high school tournament hosted at their school and at least 6 other tournaments nationwide. LIST was regarded as an exceptionally well-written set of the 2016-2017 competition season, an accomplishment made even more notable by the fact that as head editors, both were just beginning their sophomore years upon LIST's completion.
The Missouri Quizbowl Alliance commends Raj and Moses for their significant efforts in promoting high-quality academic competition in Missouri and will recognize these efforts by publicizing the award upon the MOQBA website and by presenting them with plaques and certificates as part of the 2018 NAQT Missouri State Qualifier ceremonies held on March 3, 2018.
So supported and signed by the membership of the Missouri Quizbowl Alliance as of March 3, 2018.
