The Enquirer is reporting that a recent St. Thomas Elementary graduate Eileen Bunch will compete in the $75,000 Jeopardy! Teen Tournament later this month.
"In fourth grade, I learned that there was a sport for me... a sport that exercised my brain," Bunch told the Community Press earlier this year, beginning the audition process for the show's two-week tournament for middle and high school students.
According to the Enquirer's report, contestants selected to compete in the tournament must pass a 50-question test online. Of those who pass, select students attend regional, in-person auditions, which include another written test, along with an interview and a practice game against other prospective contestants.
The Jeopardy! Teen Tournament will begin on July 21. The two-week challenge will be aired locally on Fox 19, weeknights at 7:30 p.m.
