Truman State Invitational Tournament

Post by JMAC the Chef »

Hello everyone,

We at the Truman State University Academic Competition Organization are proud to announce we will be hosting a high-school tournament for January 14th. The tournament will feature a set of a lower difficulty and will be terrific practice for any novice teams or organizations beginning their season with the start of the New Year. The tournament is open to all high school teams not currently planning to attend quiz-bowl tournaments at Truman High School and Jeff City. If you attend these tournaments, you will not be able to compete at Truman’s event. As of now, prices are still in discussion, but will be available in the immediate future. If you have any questions, feel free to email me, president Jared McNett at [email protected].

We now have MSHSAA sanctioning for this event. There is still plenty of room at our tournament for interested high school teams.

Unfortunately, we have had to cancel this tournament due to only 2 schools registering.
