In general, Division I has more difficult questions and is intended for players with more quizbowl experience; Division II has easier questions and is intended for players with less quizbowl experience.

NAQT's rules for Division II eligibility are here, and you can read sample packets from each division of the 2018 SCT here (the two sets marked "Sectional Championship Tournament, Division I" and "Sectional Championship Tournament, Division II.")

Please let me know if you have any questions; we hope you and your teammates will be able to join us for next month's SCT!
