Phillips Academy Academic Team is happy to announce that we will be hosting Massachusetts State Championships this year on Saturday, May 18th.

All high schools are invited to register, ranging in experience from Super Sunday, High School Quiz Show, or just trying quiz bowl for the first time.
The field is currently capped at 18 teams due to the number of rooms available. Teams from out of the State are allowed and encouraged to attend as well.

Register by emailing Vincent at [email protected] OR using the following link provided by NAQT: ... t_id=10529.

Please fill out your rosters WITH GRADE LEVELS INDICATED! Thanks very much.

If there are any issues or additional pieces of information, email Vincent at [email protected].

NOTE: REGISTRATION WILL NOW BE HELD IN GELB SCIENCE CENTER. Unfortunately I was not able to reserve any auditorium venues for the day, so we will be holding registration in the science center. Teams will go to their game rooms after arrival, and we'll have a brief opening meeting, presumably on the second floor (it will be a little crowded). We would like to begin game-play around 9:00 AM in Gelb Science Center. The tournament should end around 5 PM. Teams will play a minimum of ten games, should we reach our field cap.

We will be playing according to standard NAQT rules with untimed halves and no computational math tossups.

We will be selling pizza at $15 per large dominos pizza with water! Please communicate your lunch decision to the tournament director (Vincent) when you register. There are also several restaurants within walking distance.

MA State Championships will be using the Division II SCT set this year, which will better prepare teams looking to play at HSNCT and similar difficulty tournaments.

The top 15% of the field (rounded up) will be qualified for HSNCT and with Platinum certification the top 25% of the field will qualify for PACE.

The fees for this tournament are as follows:

$85 for the first team
$75 for all additional teams
−$5 discount per working buzzer system
−$10 discount per staffer provided

Cash and checks are acceptable forms of payment. Please make all checks out to “Trustees of Phillips Academy”, and include "Andover Quiz Bowl" in the memo section.

We hope to see you there!

I'm assuming that you are using the 2019 SCT Division II set?
