Attention Portland Public Schools’ high school students: Maine Public (formerly the Maine Public Broadcasting Network or MPBN) is launching a new scholastic quiz show next spring and is accepting team entries by Oct. 30, 2016. Make it to the finals and your school could win $1,000!

The new MPBN scholastic game show is a televised academic quiz tournament set up in a single-elimination knockout format. The winner of each match moves on to the next round of competition while the losing team is eliminated from further competition for that season. The season is comprised of 4 quarterfinal games, 2 semifinals and the championship.

The winning team will receive a $1,000 check and the second place team will receive a $500 check to go towards the school’s “Project Graduation” or other appropriate use as determined by the winning school’s administration. Any Maine secondary school, public or private, serving grades 9-12, is eligible to participate. Schools or groups need to have the permission of the appropriate administrator to enter this contest.

An authorized person shall contact MPBN by October 30, 2016 to enter a team. For more information, click HERE.
