Community College Championship Tournament

CCCT logo

National Academic Quiz Tournaments ran its first national championship tournament purely for community colleges in 2009. Since then the Community College Championship Tournament (CCCT) has been held annually to name the best community college quiz bowl team in North America.

NAQT has named a community college national champion since 2002, but before 2009 that determination was made as part of the Division II competition at its Intercollegiate Championship Tournament. The CCCT is specifically for community colleges and allows more teams to participate in the championship.

Teams qualify for the CCCT via Community College Sectional Championship Tournaments (CC SCTs) held nationwide in late January. The winner of each CC SCT will be invited to the championship along with additional teams based on a national comparison of their D-Values.

The 2022 CCCT, held online, was won by Inver Hills Community College of Inver Grove Heights, Minnesota.

The 2023 CCCT will be February 24–25 at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare in Rosemont, Illinois (near Chicago).

All two-year, junior, and community colleges are eligible to compete in NAQT’s CC SCT and CCCT events.
