Press Release 03/31/11 Marinette, WI 

The Wausaukee High School HI-Q team got a fire truck escort back to school Wednesday, March 30 after it won the national HI-Q championship.
Wausaukee claimed title by scoring 61 points to defeat three other teams in the academic quiz competition. Wausaukee led in the close match most of the way.

  Garnet Valley High School in Pennsylvania finished second with 53 points, Alma Bryant High School in Alabama finished third with 36 points and Monroe High School in Washington was fourth with 32.

  The competition took place in a classroom at UW Marinette. Wausaukee was connected with the other teams in their home states using video link technology.

  The members of Wausaukee’s HI-Q national championship team are: Brooke Arndt, Beau DeLaet, Brett Edlbeck, Joe Jaworski, Cutler Lewandowski, Staci Sturmer, Caitlyn Tracy, and Brooke Wickman. The team advisors are Jennifer Klimek and Suzie Schlies.

Wausaukee qualified to compete in the national HI-Q championship match when it won the local championship earlier this month. Eighteen teams from Northeast Wisconsin and Michigan’s Upper Peninsula participated in that competition.

It was the first time Wausaukee won the local title and national championship.

  This was the first time a national HI-Q championship match was staged since 1981. A team from Marinette Catholic Central High School traveled to Pennsylvania to compete in that event and finished in third place.

  Established in 1948, Hi-Q is the oldest continuing academic quiz competition for high school students in the United States. This was the 35th year of local competition.

  The local sponsors of HI-Q are Farmers & Merchants Bank & Trust, Kimberly-Clark Corp. and UW Marinette.
