High School National Championship Tournament

The High School National Championship Tournament (HSNCT) is NAQT’s premier high school event. The tournament is held at the end of each school year and features the top quiz bowl teams from across the United States (and, increasingly, the world).

Teams qualify for the HSNCT by their performance at tournaments held throughout the year using questions supplied by NAQT. A list of upcoming events may be found on NAQT’s website.

272 teams attended the 2016 HSNCT, which took place at the Hilton Anatole in Dallas, Texas from May 27–29 (Memorial Day weekend). The A team from Hunter College High School of New York City won.

The 2017 HSNCT will be held at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis in Georgia from May 26–28 (Memorial Day weekend).

If you have any questions about the HSNCT (or any other NAQT events), please contact NAQT at naqt@naqt.com.

A list of all past champions is available, as is the current subject distribution of the national championship set.
