Scholars Bowl

The AISA is excited to announce a new partnership for our scholars bowl competition.  At the middle school and high school level, we have partnered with the Alabama Scholastic Competition Association (ASCA).  This partnership will automatically allow the winners of the AISA State Scholars Bowl tournaments to now advance to the ASCA state tournament.  We will still utilize the NAQT test series and winners of our state competitions will still be eligible for national competitions.

In doing this, we have now adopted the ASCA rules for competitions.  Please review these rules as they are different from our previous rules.  All AISA middle school and high school teams participating in district/state will also be required to be members of ASCA. This membership has a lot of benefits and opportunities and we hope all AISA will take advantage of this opportunity and participate in many of their related events.

If you have questions about ASCA, visit their website at Alabama Scholastic Competition Association  or if you have membership questions, contact Claudette Smith ( ) or Sharon Daily (
