Partnership for Academic Competition Excellence

We are a non-profit that promotes high school quizbowl.

We run the National Scholastic Championship (NSC), a national high school quizbowl tournament.

The 2021 NSC was held online on June 5 and 6, 2021, and featured 80 teams.

See results from the 2021 NSC.

In fall 2020, as schools were going virtual, we developed an online tournament guide for players, coaches, and tournament directors.

For 2020–2021, online tournaments could serve as qualifiers for the 2021 NSC. Please see here for more information on hosting and qualifying for the 2021 NSC.

The 2020 David Riley Quizbowl Conference is now available online.

PACE is a 501(c)(3) non-profit. Your donations help us fund the NSC, college scholarships, outreach, the HSQuizbowl forums, and many other projects.
