The Missouri Academic Coaches Association (MACA) is pleased to announce that it will be hosting the third annual Middle School State Academic Tournament on March 17th at Hallsville High School. This tournament is open to teams of 7th and 8th grade students.
Games will consist of 20 tossups worth ten points each, followed by three-part bonuses worth up to thirty points. Tossups will include powers (extra points for answering a tossup early). The question set for the tournament will be NAQT MS #26.
We will host a junior varsity/novice division and a middle school/junior high division. Middle school/junior high programs must be properly registered with MSHSAA in order to participate. There will be no roster restrictions for the MS/JH division; the JV division will have a roster restriction:
All freshmen may compete. NO seniors may compete.
Sophomores who have not competed at HSNCT, SSNCT or PACE NSC may compete.
Juniors who have not previously competed at any 20/20 tournament may compete.
Middle school programs must be properly registered with MSHSAA in order to participate.

There will be a middle school division (7th/8th grade teams from MSHSAA-affiliated schools) and one for students in the sixth grade or below. Rosters shall be limited to 8 players and we request that you limit teams to six players so as to maximize playing time for all students.
