The Show-Me Conference is a Missouri athletic conference that sponsors several quizbowl competitions. It comprises nine smaller, rural school districts on either side of the Missouri River in central Missouri.


High School

The conference hosts a high school competition each year, currently on modified NAQT high school questions in the MSHSAA format. The 2013 edition was held in tossup/bonus format.

Elementary School

Somewhat unique is the conference's sponsorship of an elementary competition, known as Knowledge Bowl. Each grade - 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th - competes in its own separate double-elimination bracket to crown a grade-level winner each year. In 2015-2017, questions for the Knowledge Bowl were written by SAGES.
