Postby anthonywang1999 » Mon Nov 07, 2016 3:36 pm

The Middlesex County Academy for Science, Mathematics, and Engineering Technologies in Edison, NJ is pleased to announce that we will be hosting the second New Jersey Middle School State Championship on Saturday, March 25th, 2017!

Both new and experienced teams are welcome to attend. We will be using a National Academic Quiz Tournaments (NAQT) middle school set, specifically (MS-#22). Further information on set distribution and rules can be found here.

The field cap is currently 28 teams (expanded from 24!). Teams will be limited to 6 people at maximum, and schools planning to bring more than 6 students must register multiple teams. During the rounds, up to 4 students are permitted to play at any given time, and up to 2 students can sub out at halftime. Teams are also allowed to have fewer than 4 people.

Each game will have 20 tossups each accompanied by bonus questions valued up to 30 points. Computational Math questions will be read.

Logistics:
Registration will begin at 8:15 AM, and the opening meeting will start at 9:00 AM. We will explain the rules and regulations for new Quizbowl teams. The tournament will be held at MCASMET (100 Technology Drive, Edison, NJ 08837). Our tournament is set for March 25th, 2017.

We currently have a field cap of 28 (expanded from 24) teams to fill up the bracket, but will be looking to expand if more teams indicate interest.

Food:
Breakfast will be provided. Pizza will also be available to order for lunch (more information on that as we get closer to tournament date), or students may bring lunch with them. We will also be selling various snacks and drinks as a fundraiser.

Fees:
Registration fees per team:
$70 for the first team from a school and $60 for each additional team

Discounts:
-$15 per each working buzzer set.

Registration fees can be paid by cash or check. Checks should be made payable to “Middlesex County Academy” with your school’s name and registration fee in the memo line. While payment the day of the tournament is preferable, mailing it in advance will work as well. Anything sent via mail should be addressed to
