NJMSC IV - March 10th, 2019

Post by TropeaR » Thu Dec 13, 2018 9:33 pm

NOTE: This tournament was originally scheduled for Saturday, March 2nd, but due to weather issues, it has been moved to Sunday, March 10th. All of the previous information about the event, which is present in this post, has not changed.

The Middlesex County Academy for Science, Mathematics, and Engineering Technologies in Edison, NJ is pleased to announce that we will be hosting the fourth New Jersey Middle School State Championship on Saturday, March 10th, 2018!

The field cap (for now) is set at 24 teams, and registration can be found here. Both new and experienced teams are welcome to attend.

We will be using a National Academic Quiz Tournaments (NAQT) middle school set (specifically MS-30) along with standard NAQT rules (as detailed here). Computational Math questions will be read.

Teams will be limited to 6 people at maximum, and schools planning to bring more than 6 students must register multiple teams. During the rounds, up to 4 students are permitted to play at any given time, and up to 2 students can sub out at halftime. Teams are also allowed to have fewer than 4 people.

Logistics:
Registration will begin at 8:15 AM, and the opening meeting will start at 9:00 AM. We will explain the rules and regulations for new Quiz Bowl teams. The tournament will be held at MCA SMET (100 Technology Drive, Edison, NJ 08837). The date is set for March 10th, 2019.

Food:
Breakfast will be provided. Pizza will also be available to order for lunch (more information on that as we get closer to tournament date), or students may bring lunch with them. We will also be selling various snacks and drinks as a fundraiser.

Fees and Discounts:
The registration fee is currently set at $80 for your first team and $70 for each additional team. There will be a $15 buzzer discount (so -$15 per fully-functional buzzer system you bring).

Payment Information:
Registration fees can be paid by cash or check. Checks should be made payable to “Middlesex County Academy” with your school’s name and registration fee in the memo line. While payment the day of the tournament is preferable, mailing it in advance will work as well. Anything sent via mail should be addressed to:

Middlesex County Academy
c/o Amro Mosaad
100 Technology Drive
Edison, NJ 08837

Nationals Qualification:
The top 15% of the teams will qualify for NAQT's Middle School National Championship Tournament (MSNCT) to be held in Rosemont, Illinois in May 2019. More information about MSNCT can be found here.

If you have any questions regarding the tournament, you can contact us at gomesm@mcvts.net, mosaada@mcvts.net, or tropear@mcvts.net.
