These Massachusetts Kids Are Competing On ‘High School Quiz Show’
These high school kids from Amesbury, Massachusetts could be the next generation of Jeopardy contestants!
According to the Daily News, in Newburyport, six students from Amesbury High School qualified for WGBH’s High School Quiz Show.
Juniors Melissa Andolfato, Alice Dragnea, Liam Keleher, and seniors Ellie Costello, and Adrianna Ayers, will compete with 15 other academic teams from across Massachusetts on the 10th anniversary season.
The Daily News says this will be Amesbury High School's first appearance in a decade. The school last sent a team to the competition on the first season of the trivia show. They were selected after receiving the highest scores on an oral quiz at the Super Sunday qualifying event earlier this month.
Questions will cover a wide cross section of trivia...sports, pop culture, and random facts. The newspaper article claims two schools will face off at a time and answer the same 50 questions. Whichever team answers the most correctly moves on to compete against the next team.
High School Quiz Show will premiere on WGBH 2 on February 2, 2019 at 6 p.m.
