Tournament of Champions Qualifier

The Tournament of Champions is the statewide written scholastic championship for middle school students.  It is sponsored by the OAAC. 

In order to attend the TOC 6th, 7th and 8th grade students must earn a spot by placing 1st, 2nd or 3rd at a qualifying tournament.  There are several invitational TOC Qualifying tournaments held across the state. To find out if there is one close to you, click on the Other TOCQ's link.

In addition to the invitational tournaments, the OAAC will be offering our TOCQ online. For more information on online TOCQ.

Grade level mathematics and advanced mathematics

There will be a grade level mathematics test for 6th Grade, 7th Grade and 8th Grade based on the new mathematics standards. Younger students taking 7th or 8th grade mathematics will test at the grade level of the mathematics class in which they are enrolled. 6th, 7th and 8th grade mathematics tests will be given at the TOC. Students enrolled in advanced mathematics - Algebra I and up - and qualifying for the TOC will take their math test at the HSTOC in May.

If your 6th, 7th or 8th grade student is enrolled in upper level math - Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry or other advanced mathematics classes, they will compete at the HSTOC on May 5 or 6.

Advanced mathematics qualifying tests will be offered by the OAAC in the online tournaments. These tests are for qualifying purposes only - A student, regardless of grade, enrolled in Algebra I, will take the Algebra I test. A student, regardless of grade, enrolled in Geometry, will take the Geometry test, etc. These advanced math tests will count for TOC Scholar qualifying purposes.

1. Participating and/or Qualifying at an OAAC TOC qualifier will NOT give a student an advantage at the TOC in April.

2. A school may participate in only one OAAC TOC qualifier per year. However, the enrollment may be spread over several online events. For example:
If you lived in Hennessey and wanted to participate in the OAAC January TOCQ but your 7th and 8th grade students were on a field trip to DisneyWorld the week of the competition you could enter your 6th grade students in everything but the current events and humanities tests. (math, science, language arts and social studies) Then you could enter your 7th and 8th grade students in one of the other open tournaments or you could spread the enrollment over several open tournaments. Take the Humanities & Fine Arts test during the November open. Take the current events test during the February open. Take the social studies, science, language arts and mathematics test during the last chance open.

3. A school may attend as many non-OAAC TOCQs as they would like. (Invitationals)

4. Medals will be mailed for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in each grade for each test.

5. Entry fee $2.00 per student per test.
