The quest for knowledge is an enriching and lifelong endeavor. Produced by WSIU Television since 1985, Scholastic Hi-Q is an academically-based game show featuring high school teams from the Southern Illinois region. It's a single elimination tournament in which 32 teams compete.

Scholastic Hi-Q is a fun and exciting way of demonstrating the importance of a broad-based education that also exemplifies the public educational and informational mission of WSIU Public Broadcasting and Southern Illinois University. The program provides area schools an excellent opportunity to display their academic skills while promoting school spirit.

ABOUT THE SHOW

MEET THE HOST: JUSTIN BROOM

Justin Broom is very excited to be acting as the new host for the 27th season of Scholastic Hi-Q: The Game Where Knowledge Rules. Broom is a Lincoln, IL native and a senior at SIU pursuing dual-degrees in Radio, Television, and Digital Media with a specialization in Electronic Journalism as well as Theater.

Outside of Hi-Q, Justin is also the acting Executive Producer of River Region Evening Edition on WSIU, a radio personality for River Radio's 101.5 CIL-FM, and has starred in multiple productions with the SIU Department of Theater. After graduation in May, he plans on moving to Chicago to begin his career as a producer and performer. Broom says he is "very lucky to be a part of the WSIU family and feels very fortunate to have the opportunities that are offered here. There is nowhere else where I would have the chance to do this and there is nowhere else I would rather do this than here."
