Team reservation form


This year, Sunrise Middle School will be hosting our first Middle School Quiz Bowl Invitational for 7th and 8th grade mixed teams. Currently, the field is set at 18 teams and we have 8 of those filled. If we expand the field to 24, I will let you know.

The tournament will use the N.A.Q.T. MS-23 question set. Games consist of twenty tossups worth ten points each followed by non-rebounding bonuses worth up to thirty points. Tossups will feature "powers" (additional points awarded for correct buzzes very early in the question) but no penalty for an incorrect early buzz (no negs).

It is important that each school participating register their program with MSHSAA. The fee is minimal, and your A.D. can do this easily, especially if your H.S. is already signed up. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have. I am happy to have the help this year of David Dennis of Washington School District, one of the premier academic coaches in Missouri, and a member of the Missouri Quiz Bowl Alliance--a group dedicated to the advancement of high quality Quiz Bowl in Missouri.

Note: there are no food establishments near Sunrise. A full-service concession stand will be available, including pizza by the slice. An order form for full pizzas from Domino's will be sent out in October for delivery. (delivery service is not available for call ins. We will make the delivery for you and bill your account.)

I hope each of you are excited about another year of Quiz Bowl. Have a wonderful year!

1 team: $65.00
2 Teams: $60.00 each
3-4 teams: $55.00 each
Reader/Moderator: $10.00 discount

We've taken the 6 spots remaining under the initial cap of 18 and created an elementary division.
