The Partnership for Academic Competition Excellence is proud to announce that the 2017 National Scholastic Championship (NSC) will be held at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare on June 10-11, 2017.

PACE will recognize Junior Varsity (JV) and Small School teams, depending on the number of teams who receive such designations.

The tournament will be directed by Gaurav Kandlikar, and the set will be head edited by Rob Carson.

The field for the 2017 NSC is capped at 96 teams. A list of currently registered teams is available.
