KDKA held its final championship match of the Westfield Insurance Hometown High Q program on Saturday, June 25. Top-finishing teams earned grants from Westfield to support academic programs and projects.
The academic quiz show features teams of three students from local high schools competing for the top prize. In the Pittsburgh area, Hampton has claimed the championship for the past two years. This year, Winchester Thurton took first place, and took home a $10,00 prize. Homer Central and Hampton, who ranked second and third respectively, each received $5,000 for their schools' educational use.
Since launching its first quiz show sponsorship in 2003, Westfield has awarded more than $750,000 in grants to local schools.
