Every Michigan school district will have the opportunity to hold a preliminary first round of the Challenge online. The top teams from across Michigan will be invited to participate in a three-round State Finals competition.
The two teams with the highest scores after round three will then compete for the state title in a fast-paced “Quiz Bowl” round. The fun does not stop there! The winner of the state title will compete in an online Regional competition with a chance to qualify for the National Finals in New York!
