Paschal High School took home the big trophy Wednesday in an evening of intense and entertaining competition. Paschal defeated Arlington Heights High School for the championship in the 2018-19 Fort Worth ISD High School Whiz Quiz finals.
“We are so proud of the work, the dedication, and the fun that go into Whiz Quiz, which starts start early in the fall,” said Fort Worth ISD Superintendent Kent Scribner. “These young competitors exemplify what we’re about in Fort Worth ISD – preparing all students for success in college, career and community leadership.”
Earlier in the evening, Paschal topped the Texas Academy of Biomedical Sciences (TABS) in the first semi-final. In the second semi-final – the nail-biter of the night – Arlington Heights defeated the Young Men’s Leadership Academy in a tiebreaker.
The Southwest High School Jazz Ensemble entertained between matches, and Gold Seal Advanced Media Program students took part in the live production. The District streamed the matches and aired them live on Spectrum 192 and ATT U-verse 99.
On Tuesday night, McLean Middle School won the middle school finals. Daggett Montessori earned the 6th Grade championship.
Kroger sponsored a culinary segment in which Trimble Technical High School Gold Seal culinary students prepared gourmet snacks for the live audience. Pizza Snob provided dinner for the student production crew.
