DARIEN, Conn. — When is Friday? That's the day that Michael Borecki, a junior at Darien High School will compete on the semifinals of the ‘Jeopardy’ Teen Tournament.
The show will be broadcast at 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 18, on WABC-TV and WTNH-TV in Connecticut.
Borecki is one of the local contestants competing in the 2016 "Jeopardy Teen Tournament" that began airing this week.
Borecki, one of two Connecticut teens to compete in this year's tournament, contends for the tournament's grand prize of $100,000 in the two-week event. It was taped earlier this year at DAR Constitution Hall in Washington, D.C.
“The Teen Tournament is my favorite yearly event due to the energy and enthusiasm of our young contestants,” said "Jeopardy" host Alex Trebek. “Taping this year’s shows in D.C. only added to that feeling of excitement and also created a sense of occasion that was felt by everyone who participated in it.”
Porter Bowman, a junior at St. Luke’s School in New Canaan, was another of the 15 teen contestants who took part in earlier rounds of the quiz show competition.
