The Northwest Pennsylvania region is held in Penn State Erie. The 2019 competition will be held on Tuesday, March 5, 2019.

History

Although the region's teams currently struggle to be competitive at the state level, the Northwest region has a rich history of high-placing teams. Although Kane Area Middle School is the only team that qualified for the national tournament from this region that still competes in the region, Northwest has produced several national qualifiers at the B Division level and several top-10 finishers at the C Division level.

In the early 2000s, Pittsburgh Allderdice High School and Montour High School competed in the region, due to its location at Westminster College. Also, Shady Side Academy Middle School and Shady Side Academy High School both competed in the region from 2002-2006, and Sewickley Academy competed in the region in 2006. All of these schools competed in the Southwest Pennsylvania Regional from 2007 onwards.

In 2008, State College Area High School left the Central Pennsylvania Regional and began competing in this region. They did so until 2012, when they moved back to the Central region. Likewise, the two middle schools that feed into State College, Mount Nittany Middle School and Park Forest Middle School, began competing in the region in 2008 and left in 2012.
