NAQT is pleased to announce that the Indiana Association of School Principals will be adding quiz bowl to the set of academic competitions in which it conducts state championships, beginning in 2019–2020. The IASP will run area tournaments throughout the state on January 25, 2020 using an NAQT Introductory Invitational Series question set. The area tournaments are qualifiers for the state championship, which will occur on a date and in a location to be announced, using an Invitational Series set. High school tournaments (including leagues and other events) run by high schools in Indiana during 2019–2020 will receive free questions (regardless of whether the school’s principal is an IASP member).
NAQT will be considering contract-writer applications from June 1 until July 31. Potential writers must have a high school diploma and have turned 18 on or prior to their date of application. Please read this page for more details on writing positions.
