"Matchwits," the long-running program produced by Rocky Mountain PBS in Pueblo, is a weekly, high school academic quiz program that is hosted by Craig Eliot. For its 29th season, the Matchwits competition and broadcast went STATEWIDE! All Colorado high schools were invited to participate in the single elimination tournament.
The on-air tournament is made up of four rounds of competition including the championship game. The game is made up of three rounds including toss-up questions allowing individual players to answer for their school and Speed Round questions where each school works as a team to answer as many questions as possible in a short period of time. As the rounds progress, the difficulty of the questions asked increases. Questions in the On-Air Tournament include, but are not limited to, English, history, geography, science, current events and math.
"Matchwits" airs on Sundays at 6:30 pm from January to the middle of April. Past games can be viewed at rmpbs.org/video/matchwits.
