Our intent in offering a HSTOCQ is not to replace the existing qualifying tournaments held by the colleges and universities, but to allow the high schools in outlying areas an opportunity to qualify for the HSTOC without multiple long trips. Also, offering additional qualifying tests for subjects not offered by all scholastic tournaments.

In order to attend the HSTOC students must earn a spot by placing 1st-5th at a qualifying tournament.  Many regional colleges and universities host scholastic tournaments. To find out if there is one close to you, click on the Regional College and University Scholastic, Interscholastic and Curricular Competitions link to the left.

In addition to the competitions held by colleges and universities, the OAAC will be offering an opportunity to qualify by participating in our HSTOCQ online.

1. Qualifying at an OAAC HSTOC qualifier will NOT give a student an advantage at the HSTOC in May.

2. A school may participate in only one OAAC HSTOC qualifier per year.     A school may attend as many College and University meets as it would like.   

3. For OAAC HSTOCQ tournaments, medals will be given to 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in each test.

6. Entry fee $2.00 per student per test.
