The 2014 MSHSAA State Championship was held on May 9-10, 2014. Classes 1 and 2 competed on Friday and Classes 3 and 4 played on Saturday.

Questions for Districts and State were provided by NAQT for the fourth year. The use of existing sets for some questions made three A sets (127A, 129A, 133A) and one IS set (136) unavailable for use during the regular season in Missouri.

Districts

Sixteen district tournaments in each of the four classes were held on April 12. District championship game matchups are posted here

Sectionals

The Sectionals round was the first round of the state championship and took place on April 30. Sectionals consisted of best two-of-three matchups between the winners of two adjacent districts. The winner of each sectional advanced to the remaining rounds of the state championship.
