Established in Delaware County Pennsylvania in 1948, Hi-Q is the oldest continuing academic quiz competition in the United States. This competition was expanded in 1976 to Washington State, in 1977 to Wisconsin/Michigan, in 1982 to Maine, in 1984 to Arkansas, and in 1987 to Alabama.

Presently, The Farmers & Merchants Bank & Trust, in cooperation with The Kimberly-Clark Corporation and the University of Wisconsin - Marinette, sponsor the program.  "We believe the experience and support of academic competition encourages academic achievement, initiative, and good sportsmanship.  We feel that the experience gained from this program as a participant or as a supportive spectator is invaluable" said Tom Maxwell, President of the Farmers & Merchants Bank & Trust.

2015 marked the 68th anniversary of the Hi-Q Program and the 39th year of Northeast Wisconsin/Upper Peninsula of Michigan Region competition.
