The Challenge, an academic TV quiz show for high schools featuring the best and brightest local students, is celebrating their 10th season. The Challenge tests high school students' knowledge of history, arts and literature, science and math. The show is made up of three rounds: Multiple Choice, The Lightning Round and Free Response. There are also randomly placed bonus questions for teams to earn extra points.
The Challenge is produced by Cablevision, News 12 and presented by Power To Learn. The Challenge - Long Island is gearing up for its tenth season and The Challenge - New Jersey for its second season. This year will be like no other. The Challenge is expanding to Connecticut high schools where they will compete in The Challenge - Connecticut.
Each fall, high schools from around the area hope to be chosen as one of up to 32 schools in each region that will participate. Schools advance in the tournament through a series of elimination rounds. After 31 weeks of competition, one school in each region is crowned champion, winning $2,500 dollars for their school. The championship team goes on to The Challenge Championship where they square off against the winning teams from the other regions in a tri-state showdown.
The school crowned regional Champion will receive $2,500 in prize money. The school crowned Challenge Champion will receive $10,000 in prize money. Each student participating in the Challenge Championship game will receive $500.
