The Minnesota Quiz Bowl Alliance (MQBA) was an organization that organized and promoted "good quiz bowl" competitions for high school and middle school students in Minnesota. MQBA generally ran tournaments on weekends and should not be confused with the Minnesota High School Quiz Bowl League, a league that runs on Thursday nights and uses a unique format.

MQBA events were run by Robert Hentzel until his retirement in 2022. Various schools and organizations, including the University of Minnesota and Play Quiz Bowl, now run events on an individual basis.
