Q.  When will the case be released this year?

A.  The case is now available!!!! It can be downloaded from the Case Materials tab on this website.

Q.  When and where will the regional and championship tournaments be held this year?

A.   The regional tournaments will likely be in Lexington and Louisville again this year.   TENTATIVE SCHEDULE  February 2-3, 2019.  The championship tournament will likely be in Northern Kentucky.  TENTATIVE SCHEDULE March 1-3, 2019.

Q.  Will the teams be assigned to the same regional tournament site as last year?

A.  No.  Every effort will be made to schedule teams to the closest regional tournament site.  However, the Northern Kentucky teams will likely be split between the tournament sites.  

Q. What is the cost to enter a team?

A.  $350.00 per team.  ($300.00 for first year teams) A short need-based application will need to be completed.    PLEASE NOTE:  The cost for the competition will be $100.00 less per team due to good financial stewardship last year.   In addition, we received a grant from Kentucky Bar Foundation which is allowing us to offer entry fee waivers for up to two schools that demonstrate a need.   A short need-based scholarship application will need to be completed and submitted online.  The application will be enabled around September 1, 2018.

A. Yes.  We anticipate at least four new teams this year.  (Boyle County, Clark County, Henry Clay and Simon Kenton).  KHSMTA has been and will continue to recruit new schools to form a team and compete.  If you are affiliated with a high school that is considering forming a team please review the "starting a new team?" page on this website and contact us so we can help.
