WPBS-DT, Watertown public television, just completed the 32nd season of Whiz Quiz with Glenn Gough and is pleased to congratulate the 2011 Whiz Quiz Champions, the team from Belleville-Henderson Central School. Belleville-Henderson Advisor Tom Reff created a team with great depth. The team started practicing in the spring during their lunch break at school and continued working toward the competition when they returned to school in September.
This year’s team had five seniors, but there are several underclassmen who will return for the 2012 Whiz Quiz competition. Belleville-Henderson, as the American Champion, went on to further compete in our 2011 Whiz Quiz International Championships.
Thirty-one American high schools competed this year in the single elimination tournament, each with a team of four students. Whiz Quiz is produced locally here at WPBS-DT and takes place in October and November. It airs on WPBS-DT October through December. Matches may also be viewed on our website at www.wpbstv.org for friends and family out of our area.
WPBS-DT is a non-profit public television station serving approximately 650,000 viewers in Northern New York and Eastern Ontario. WPBS-DTs mission is to educate, entertain and inform in order to enhance the lives of those they serve.
