Small School National Championship Tournament
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.
The 2023 SSNCT was held on April 28–30 at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare in Rosemont, Illinois (near Chicago). The champion of the 77-team Traditional Public Schools Division was Fair Grove R-X School (Fair Grove, Missouri), who also won the Very Small Schools title. The champion of the 55-team Open Division was the A team from BASIS Independent McLean (McLean, Virginia).
The 2024 SSNCT will be Friday–Sunday, April 26–28 at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare in Rosemont, Illinois (near Chicago).
Schools that are too large 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.
