New Middle School Package

NAQT offers a discounted package to middle schools with new quiz bowl teams to help them get started. There are similar packages for new high school teams, new community college teams, and new college teams.

The package includes…

  • The complete Middle School Series #19, Middle School Series #20, and Middle School Series #21 sets (30 packets total). These are the questions used by most tournaments through the year and are intended for players in the school’s quiz bowl club who plan on traveling to tournaments during the year.

  • The complete set (21 packets) from the 2016–2017 Middle School National Championship Tournament (MSNCT). These are the questions that last year’s elite teams faced in Dallas. They represent the level of accomplishment and knowledge to which serious teams and players should aspire.

  • An abbreviated set (3 pages each) of Frequency List study guides that list the works of literature, art, and music that have been mentioned most frequently in NAQT’s questions since our founding in 1996. These will help team members focus their preparation for invitational tournaments, state championships, and (if they are successful!) Nationals.

New teams may also be interested in downloading NAQT’s official Rules, our Eligibility Rules, an article on starting a new team, and the official NAQT scoresheet.

The New Middle School Package thus contains questions for every facet of a school’s first year “on the circuit,” from new players that have never competed before to the school’s top four players who are preparing for the 2018 state and national championships. It contains a total of 51 game packets with over 2,400 questions of varying degrees of difficulty.

The total cost of the package, including shipping, is $119.

The New Middle School Package may be ordered either through NAQT’s online ordering system or by calling us at 888‑411‑6278 (“NAQT”).
