Seekonk High School Competes for Spot on WGBH's High School Quiz Show
Last week, a team of students from Seekonk High School came to WGBH studios in Brighton to compete at Super Sunday, the qualifying event for High School Quiz Show. If they’re among the top 14 scoring teams, they’ll move on to the televised academic competition and be part of High School Quiz Show’s 11th season, hosted by Billy Costa and broadcast on WGBH 2. On Super Sunday, teams of four students took an identical written quiz that covered a range of subjects, from literature and science to math, history and civics.
In addition, eight teams were selected to vie for an additional spot by competing in a live event High School Quiz Show: Extra Credit, hosted by author Jeff Kinney at his Plainville, MA bookstore, An Unlikely Story, last Sunday, October 27th.
The final spot will be filled during High School Quiz Show's Season 11 premiere on Saturday, February 1 at 6 pm on WGBH, in a head-to-head wild card match-up between the highest scoring teams from Super Sunday that have not been on the show in at least five seasons.
