The Scholastic Games quiz show production was halted mid-season in 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic.  We are back in 2021 with our special physically-distanced format recorded with all participants in their homes.  We hope you enjoy the program in this revised form.

Our 31st Quiz Season:

The Scholastic Games high school quiz has been produced since 1990 as an academic competition for schools in Lorain County, Ohio.  Our fiscal sponsor is the Community West Foundation, a charitable organization that has participated as a sponsor of our program for several years.  Our charter corporate supporter is the Nordson Corporation Other major support comes from designated educational funds of the Community Foundation of Lorain County, and the Nord Family Foundation.  Our  home radio station is WEOL, AM930/FM100.3 in Elyria, with sponsorship and venue suppport from the Elyria Public Library System. 

Links to our latest archived programs are below.   This is an extraordinary year with all of our programs being recorded remotely via Zoom with all participants isolated.   It was a challenge, but with some format revisions, we made it work.   Link HERE for our format and sample questions,  Check out our  link to the Standout Scholar honor roll,  and check the list to the right for links to other program information.

A SPECIAL 2020 DOCUMENTARY: “HAPPY BIRTHDAY RADIO”
