Community College Championship Tournament
National Academic Quiz Tournaments ran its first national championship tournament purely for community colleges in the 2008–2009 competition year. 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 results of the 2017 CCCT are available online. The A team from Valencia College of Orlando, Florida won the tournament, which was held at the Hilton Minneapolis/St. Paul Airport Mall of America .
The 2018 national championship will take place March 2–3 at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare in Rosemont, Illinois, next to Chicago.
The top four teams from the 2016 CCCT qualified for the overall Division II collegiate championship, a part of the 2016 Intercollegiate Championship Tournament.
All two-year, junior, and community colleges are eligible to compete in NAQT’s CC SCT and CCCT events.
