MSG Varsity Challenge is hosted by former American Idol competitor Jared Cotter, who quizzes teams on history, current events, math, science, arts and literature in front of a live studio audience.
The intensity is rising as we enter the regional semi-finals of The Challenge, said Theresa Chillianis, MSG Varsitys general manager. We couldnt be happier with the level of competition displayed in the matches, not to mention the overwhelming support the teams have received from their schools and communities.
Participating schools advance through a series of elimination rounds, with one school in each region being crowned champion and winning $2,500 for their school. The winning teams from each region go on to The Challenge Championship, where they square off in a Tri-State Showdown.
The school awarded the title of Tri-State Champion will receive $10,000 in prize money and each student participating in the final Challenge Championship game will receive $500.
