Masters Team Selected to Compete on MSG Varsity's "The Challenge"
Posted June 7, 2012
Great news! The Masters School has been selected to compete in MSG Varsity’s “The Challenge,” an award-winning academic quiz show for high schools featuring the best and brightest local students from across the tri-state area. In the televised contest, competing high school teams ‘buzz in’ to answer questions based on their knowledge of history, arts and literature, current events, math and science.
The team we field will be comprised of a select group of Zetetics’ members, explains club advisor and math teacher John Chiodo. Zetetics is an academic club that encompasses “The Challenge” teams, the HiCMM teams (which will compete in November), the M3 teams (which will compete on the first Saturday of March), and other teams engaged in academic competitions as may develop in the future. During September’s club fair, Zetetics will be open to any interested students.
Our “Challenge” team will travel to MSG’s New York City studios on the morning of Monday, October 29, to tape our competition against a school that has yet to be named. The show will air on MSG Varsity at a later date. On October 29, the team will need to bring an additional 30 people to be members of the studio audience.
The qualifying team of Max Borowitz, Julia Butterfield, Noah Buyon, Min Woong Choi, Henry DuBeau, Dylan Etzel, Phil Golodetz, and Albert Xu will begin practicing the moment we get back from summer break. By October 1, a final team of four will be selected to compete on the show.
