The Michigan State University Academic Competition Club is pleased to announce that we will be holding a high school tournament on March 19. 2005 on the beautiful campus of Michigan State University. We will be using unused NAQT questions from last year's series since all of this year's questions have been taken. We are aware that this is the same date as the Great Lakes Regional Academic Championship. We have not yet decided upon an entry fee, but we like to keep the cost to teams low. Last year's entry fee was $45 and it probably will be around the same this year. We will have new program and buzzer system discounts. Please email me at [email protected]
