Itawamba Agricultural High School is a 9-12 high school in Fulton, MS that has a long history of competing in quizbowl competitions around the state of Mississippi and the Southeast more generally.

Competitions

Despite being relatively isolated from good quizbowl geographically, Itawamba is an extremely active competitor and host, thanks largely to the initiative of their coach Chris Johnson. They often participate in the Ole Miss Brain Brawl and the Murrah Mustang Invitational as well as the Mississippi State Invitational and tournaments around the Southeast as a whole.

Nationals Appearances

Itawamba has attended the 2014 HSNCT, 2015 HSNCT, 2015 SSNCT, 2016 SSNCT, 2017 SSNCT, 2017 HSNCT, 2018 SSNCT, 2018 HSNCT, 2019 SSNCT, and 2019 HSNCT. At the 2015 SSNCT, Itawamba achieved its first national trophy finish with a 7th place finish of 60 teams. In 2019, Itawamba also finished 7th but in a 80-team tournament.

Hosting

Itawamba hosts the Itawamba Invitational as well as the revived NAQT Mississippi State Championship and several other tournaments during the year. In 2019, they hosted their first in-house question tournament with the "Harvard on the Bigbee" event where the team members wrote the questions set.
