The Collaborative Middle School Tournament (or CMST), is a question set written by volunteers from the Quiz Bowl community. The goal is to produce a set accessible to Middle School students that follows the tenets of Good quizbowl and follows an mACF Tossup-Bonus Format. The first set was produced during the 2009-10 school year and it was repeated in the 2010-11, 2011-2012, and is planning on being repeated for the 2012-2013 school year.
The distribution for 2010-11 was American History (1/1), European History (1/1), Ancient/World History (1/1), Government (0/1), Geography (2/1), English Language Literature (2/2), Other Academic Lit/Language Arts (1/1), Juvenile Literature (1/1), Life Science (1/1), Physical Science (2/1), Astronomy (1/1), Conceptual Math (1/1), Computational Math (0/1), Visual Arts (1/1), Auditory Arts (1/1), Religion (1/1), Mythology (1/1), Current Events (1/1), and Your Choice (1/1).
