Last Saturday, October 27, Westfield Insurance-sponsored quiz show, Hometown High Q, celebrated its 500th episode. Students from Upper Saint Clair, Bethlehem Center and Avonworth made up the three competing teams for the milestone show.
Hometown High Q hit the airwaves in 2000, with the 2012-2013 season starting just last month. Three students from three different Pittsburgh-area schools compete each Saturday morning for a chance to go on to the championship, where they'll have the chance to win academic grants. Regularly scheduled episodes air on Saturdays at 11 a.m., with a special encore presentation of the week's previous episode afterward.
KDKA-TV news anchor Ken Rice was the show's host for eleven years. KDKA-TV morning anchor Rick Dayton took over, and is now in his second season behind the podium.
Westfield Insurance sponsors Hometown High Q, and provides academic grants to the top-ranking schools, totaling $20,000. Hometown High Q airs on KDKA-TV in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
