Vermont NAQT Championship (3/6/20 at Spaulding HS)

Post by kcommo »

The 14th annual Vermont NAQT Championship will be held at Spaulding High School in Barre on Friday, March 6th. This tournament will follow official NAQT rules, including timed rounds.

While this tournament is primarily intended for Vermont teams, we have generally accepted schools from other states that do not have their own NAQT state championships. Please note, however, that schools that are not members of the Vermont-NEA Scholars' Bowl are not eligible for the prize money we offer to league teams to encourage them to go to nationals.

We are accepting registrations via an online Google form here: https://forms.gle/razeLzmeztNXwKFp8

The registration deadline is Tuesday, March 3rd.

Interested teams should note that participation will require them to leave school early. Check-in will be held from 3:15 to 3:30 p.m. and matches will begin as close to 3:45 p.m as possible. The competition, featuring at least seven matches for all teams, will end at approximately 9 p.m.

A dinner break will be included in the schedule and teams have the option to order pizzas at a cost of $15 per large pizza. Teams that do not participate will be responsible for bringing their own meals.

An entry fee of $25 per team will be charged and all schools will be initially limited to two participating teams. Additional teams will be admitted if the number of readers allows it. Schools wishing to bring extra teams should note that bringing volunteers willing to serve as tournament readers is the best way to insure we can accommodate you.

The coaches of all participating teams will be expected to moderate matches so that we can keep all teams playing in all rounds. We also ask teams that have buzzer systems and timers to please bring them.
