2017-18 KQBA Goldenrod Cup

Postby Rococo A Go Go » Fri Sep 22, 2017 12:13 am

The Kentucky Quizbowl Alliance is excited to announce the fourth annual edition of the Goldenrod Cup! The Goldenrod Cup is an annual competition that aggregates the results of affiliated good quizbowl tournaments held in the state of Kentucky. A Kentucky team who wins a Goldenrod Cup event will receive 10 points, a team who finishes 2nd will receive 9 points, and this continues down to 1 point for 10th place; after the conclusion of the last Goldenrod Cup event, the team with the most points will receive a trophy commemorating their achievement. Plaques will also be awarded to 2nd and 3rd place finishers, as well as the top small school team. To qualify as a Goldenrod Cup affiliate, a tournament has to be a varsity high school quizbowl tournament in Kentucky, must be open to at least all Kentucky high school teams, must be announced either on HSQuizbowl or be included in NAQT's schedule, must use pyramidal questions as determined by KQBA, must offer at least four games to attending teams, must take place between August 1 and May 6, and must be announced at least three weeks before it takes place.

Past Winners
2014-15: Woodford County
2015-16: DuPont Manual
2016-17: Henderson County

Tournament Schedule
August 26: Glasgow Scottie Invitational (Glasgow)
October 14: Russell Invitational (Russell)
October 21: University of Kentucky Fall Championship (Lexington)

December 2: Class Act High School Invitational (Louisville)
January 6: Fleming County Academic Tournament (Flemingsburg)
