School Duel presented by BrightStar Credit Union and Chick-fil-A is the exciting academic quiz show where high school teams compete to win. School Duel is South Florida’s only locally-produced, academic-based quiz show and is hosted by former HEATV star Lisa Lee.
The 19-show School Duel series features twenty high school teams from Broward, Miami-Dade and Palm Beach Counties. The four-person teams compete in a single elimination tournament to determine the South Florida academic champion. 67 high schools in the area competed in an online test to be part of the show and the top 20 schools made it to the “televised” rounds.
School Duel consists of four rounds of questions, covering a variety of subject areas. The show will begin with the First Strike round, featuring 10-point toss up questions that may be answered by either team. The second round, the Joust, matches individual players head-to-head for a 10-point question, with the winner earning his/her team the chance to answer three more bonus questions worth up to 30 additional points. Round three is the Rapid Action round, where teams try to answer up to ten questions in a sixty-second time limit. The final round, the Final Showdown, consists of a series of toss-up questions, worth 20 points each.
