SSNCT logo

The Small School National Championship Tournament (SSNCT) is NAQT’s annual championship event for small high schools. The tournament is toward the end of each school year and features the top small school quiz bowl teams from across the United States (and beyond).

Teams qualify for the SSNCT by their performance at regular-season tournaments using questions supplied by NAQT.

160 teams (96 from traditional public schools and 64 from other Small Schools) attended the 2018 SSNCT at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare near Chicago on Friday, April 27 through Sunday, April 29.

The 2019 SSNCT will be held at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare on Friday, May 3 through Sunday, May 5.

Schools that are ineligible to attend the SSNCT may be interested in the High School National Championship Tournament (HSNCT), which is open to essentially every school that overlaps grades 9 through 12.

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