The Missouri Quizbowl Alliance encourages middle school teams to qualify and prepare for the NAQT Middle School National Championship Tournament, a high quality tournament featuring many of the nation's top middle school teams.
The 2020 MSNCT was to be held on May 8-10, 2020 (Mother's Day weekend) in Chicago, but has been canceled as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. See NAQT's website for updates about the 2021 MSNCT.
See NAQT's website for full details about qualifying for MSNCT.
Interested schools should be aware that since MSNCT is before Memorial Day weekend, MSHSAA member schools attending MSNCT may not attend any other tournament after MSHSAA High School Districts (April 6) and before the Friday of Memorial Day weekend (May 24) per By-Law 4.4.3.b. MSNCT also counts toward each school's and individual's tournament limit (By-Law 4.4.2.b).
