Delta Burke is a yearly fall tournament written and edited primarily by Chris Borglum, though since 2009 Billy Beyer has written the science and helped a lot with general editing.

It is named for the actress and 1974 Miss Florida who was a student at Valencia Community College. It was first held in November, 1997, making it the longest-running, extant community college tournament. Intended primarily as an introduction to quizbowl for community colleges in the Florida region, and of a difficulty to be used as such, it has been used outside Florida for high school tournaments such as Penn's 2008 QuAC [1], and restricted-eligibility collegiate novice tournaments [2]. Harvard mirrored the 2011 edition of the set for a tournament ran the day after that year's Harvard Fall Tournament.
