Partnership for Academic Competition Excellence

Welcome to the Partnership for Academic Competition Excellence. We’re a non-profit that promotes high school quizbowl across the United States.

We run the National Scholastic Championship (NSC), a national high school quizbowl tournament. The 2020 NSC will take place on June 6-7 at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare. You can find the list of qualifying tournaments, qualified teams in the 2020 NSC menu above. Registration for qualified teams is now open. Wildcard applications for the 2020 NSC are now open.

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