NAQT Missouri Qualifier
The first-ever NAQT Missouri Qualifier was held at Missouri S&T on February 16, 2008. While it was not the first Missouri tournament to qualify teams for the NAQT HSNCT, it was the first tournament expressly billed as such (a previous attempt had to be canceled due to lack of interest). It is equivalent to the NAQT State Championships held in other states, but cannot be expressly called a "state championship" due to MSHSAA regulations.
The 2009 edition was held February 21, 2009, again at Missouri S&T. On February 23, 2009, the expected date and location for the 2010 qualifier were announced. It was held on March 20, 2010 at the University of Missouri-Columbia, though it was not directed by the Missouri quizbowl team, but rather by Jeffrey Hill and Matt Chadbourne of MOQBA. This was the first tournament hosted by MOQBA as an organization, and MOQBA plans to continue hosting it each year.
Small School Recognition
Since the tournament's inception, the top team from a school meeting NAQT's definition of a (traditional public) small school has been recognized as the small school champion. A "very small school" title was introduced in 2018, awarded to the top team from a traditional public small school in MSHSAA Classes 1 or 2 (1 to 3 after 2021) for Scholar Bowl.
* - smaller field size resulted after several teams dropped due to forecasted inclement weather
MOQBA Online Spring Tournament (MOST)
On December 29, 2020, NAQT announced their decision not to host Sectional Championship Tournaments that season and, by extension, not produce a DII SCT question set. As a result, MOQBA began looking for other sets. As every IS set was being used at other Missouri tournaments and there was no SSNCT set (as that had been cancelled), the mACF set DART was used instead. Since it was no longer an "NAQT championship," the tournament was renamed the MOQBA Online Spring Tournament.
Similarly to the MOQBA Winter Kickoff two months prior, the tournament hosted a Zoom division and a Google Meet division, with a Small School title in each field. Unlike the NAQT Qualifiers, this tournament was not limited to Missouri teams, hence the Kentucky and Illinois teams present. The tournament accumulated a field of 54 teams (30 Meet, 24 Zoom), making it the second-largest tournament ever hosted in Missouri (behind WUHSAC XX's 57 teams).
