On Sunday, October 20th, Georgetown High School visited WGBH’s Brighton studios to participate in Super Sunday, the qualification round of WGBH’s High School Quiz Show. High School Quiz Show is a televised quiz competition between Massachusetts high school students entering it’s 11th season of broadcast on WGBH.
On Super Sunday, student teams come to the studio to take a 45-minute quiz with hopes of placing on to the broadcast. This season, the top 14 scoring teams automatically advance to the broadcast. 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. GOOD LUCK GHS!
