The Intercollegiate Championship Tournament (ICT) is the premier quiz bowl tournament at the collegiate level and its titles are coveted by hundreds of schools and thousands of players throughout North America and the United Kingdom.

NAQT invites the best schools from its nationwide qualifying events to the ICT for the year’s most competitive weekend of intercollegiate quiz bowl.

NAQT awards several titles at the ICT, including the Division I Overall Championship, Division I Undergraduate Championship, and Division II Championship.

The 2018 ICT, powered by LetterOne, was held on Saturday, April 15, at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare in Rosemont, Illinois (near Chicago). Teams qualified for it through their performances at the 2018 Sectional Championship Tournaments, which were held across the country on Saturday, February 3, 2018. Yale University’s A team won the Division I title, the University of Chicago’s C team won the Division II title, and the University of California-Berkeley’s B team won the Division I Undergraduate title.
