School Duel
Marjory Stoneman Douglas on School Duel.

By Sharon Aron Baron

In the competition to reward and showcase intellectual student talent, School Duel is back for its 11th season to do just that.

School Duel is an exciting academic quiz show and serves as a positive educational tool for students and teachers.

The 2021 season features 14 Broward County Public Schools teams, including McArthur High School, Everglades High School, Sheridan Technical High School, Cooper City High School, Miramar High School, West Broward High School, Cypress Bay High School, Western High School, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, Monarch High School, Boyd Anderson High School, McFatter High School, Coral Glades High School, and Pompano Beach High School.

Schools from Palm Beach and Miami-Dade counties also joined this year’s season of School Duel.

To accommodate COVID-19 safety guidelines while keeping the show fun, the game structure has been modified from a single-elimination tournament with an overall champion to a total of 10 individual matches and winners.

The winning teams’ players will each receive Chick-Fil-A vouchers for an entire year. The runner-up teams will receive prizes from sponsors, including cash awards for each student, courtesy of BrightStar Credit Union and Publix Supermarkets.

All participants receive School Duel trophies from EDCO Awards & Specialties.

School Duel airs at 8 p.m. every Thursday, starting March 4, 2021, on BECON-TV, through the last show on May 6, 2021. Each week’s episode is rebroadcasted at 10 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

Marjory Stoneman Douglas’ all-female team of Joana, Karen, and Gabriela will air on April 8.

BECON-TV reaches homes throughout Broward, Miami-Dade, and Palm Beach counties via Xfinity/Comcast Cable HD (channel 488 or 19), DISH Network, DIRECTV AT&TU-Verse (channel 63).
