LIST, or the Ladue Invitational Spring Tournament is an annual tournament held by Ladue Horton Watkins High School in St. Louis, Missouri. The tournament is usually held in late March–early April, giving the tournament its name.

The first LIST was held on April 2nd, 2011 and was directed and head-edited by Max Schindler. Clayton A won, followed by Jefferson City A. The top scorer was Sam Haynes from Jefferson City. It has been held every year since, apart from 2016 (presumably from a lack of interest) and 2020 (due to the COVID-19 pandemic). Out of every tournament hosted, five (2011–14 and 2017) featured a housewrite set of the same name.

The tournament was the first ever "good quizbowl" event house-written by a high school in Missouri, and was well received. [1]
