Due to a funding shortfall, there will not be a 2016 tournament.
We are hopeful, however, that the NTAE will be back in 2017!

Does your team have what it takes to be the national champion?

The National Tournament of Academic Excellence (formerly known as the Panasonic Academic Challenge), is a highly academic national high school competition modeled after Florida's statewide tournament. Each team consists of six students (four players and two alternates) and one coach. As many as six teams may compete against each other in one competition. This is not a quick response, trivial pursuit contest. Instead, it is a slower-paced tournament in which players are asked questions from the areas of mathematics, science, language arts, social studies, the fine arts, world languages (French and Spanish) and technology. The questions are written by educators from high schools and colleges throughout the nation.

Please contact Tournament Director Lisa Rawls by emailing or by calling (863) 298-5713 with any questions.
