Post 2018-2019 Nationals Bid Thread
Hello everyone,

I’m beyond pleased to announce that the nationals bids thread will be returning for the 2018-2019 season. Now that Eureka’s Season Kickoff Tournament has completed. it’s time to get the thread started! Congratulations to Parkway West and CBC, who qualified for HSNCT and NSC, Orchard Farm, who qualified for SSNCT and NSC, and Tuscumbia, who qualified for SSNCT!

(Important Note: This list is current as of October 16th, 2018, and will be updated throughout the season)

The Missouri Quizbowl Alliance wants to encourage all teams to work towards qualifying for three high quality national tournaments, which all will feature highly competitive fields of the best teams in the country. This post provides information on how to qualify, a list of qualifying tournaments for each national, and a list of Missouri teams that have qualified for the 2019 iterations of these tournaments.

NAQT’s Small School National Championship Tournament

This national will be held from April 27th-29th, 2018 at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare in Rosemont, IL (which is a suburb of Chicago).

How does NAQT decide my school is small enough for SSNCT?
.
NAQT defines (as seen here: https://www.naqt.com/hs/small-school.html) a small school to be: A. any public school with an Average Daily Membership of 500 or fewer students in grades 10-12, which is the default school of a district and does not limit its enrollment (they are required to accept as many students as want to attend), and it does not include an academically selective magnet program that draws students from outside its default district(s). Schools that meet these criteria are considered Traditional Public Schools. Or B. A school with an average daily membership of 350 or fewer students in its top three grades (up to 12), offers one grade between 9 and 12, inclusive, and is neither a traditional public school nor a homeschool or homeschool collective. These schools will play in the Open division.

How to qualify for SSNCT (also found on NAQT’s website: https://www.naqt.com/ssnct/qualification.jsp)
-Qualifying for HSNCT will automatically qualify you for SSNCT.
-Finishing in the top 30% of small schools (in either the Traditional Public or the Charter/Private Division) at a high school varsity tournament that uses NAQT questions. (On the NAQT website, they use the example of a tournament with 6 traditional small schools, 9 teams from small private schools and 15 large schools would qualify the top 2 traditional small schools and the top 3 private schools)
-Being the highest placing small school in any class or division of an official state championship with rules and questions similar to NAQT’s.


NAQT’s High School National Championship Tournament

HSNCT will be held from May 25th-27th, 2018 at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis in Atlanta, GA. This tournament is open to any team consisting of high school students who attend the same school.

How to qualify for HSNCT (also found on NAQT’s website: https://www.naqt.com/hsnct/qualification.html)
-Finishing in the top 15% of schools at a high school varsity tournament that uses NAQT questions.
-Being the highest placing school in any class or division of an official state championship with rules and questions similar to NAQT’s.

Due to MSHSAA rules, Missouri teams are unable to receive Wildcard berths to HSNCT.
