WUHSAC, or the Washington University High School Academic Competition, is Washington University's annual high school quiz bowl competition that generally takes place in January or February. As of 2013, it has been run on Yale's house written set, BHSAT, although in previous years it was written by the WUSTL team, WUAT. Teams participating can qualify for the PACE NSC.
WUHSAC is one of the flagship tournaments of the Missouri high school quiz bowl circuit, usually drawing around 30 teams. WUHSAC is also noteworthy as one of the few Missouri tournaments which draws a large number of out of state teams, recently from places like Ohio, Michigan, Tennessee and Florida.
WUHSAC is also notable for using the Gordon Arsenoff's WUStL Updates Statistics Live! (WUStL!) online scorekeeping system, which has also been used for other WUSTL tournaments since the 2012 WUHSAC.
Prior to 2013, WUHSAC was intended to be a slightly harder than average house-written tournament, similar to Harvard's HFT. Beginning with the 2008 iteration, the set drew criticism from players such as Charlie Dees due to poor difficulty control, the use of biographical clues, and generally poor writing quality. This criticism eventually led to the adoption of Yale's Bulldog High School Academic Tournament set in 2013, which was well-received.
