Think About It: “It’s Academic Hawaii” Returns!

In 10-days, "It's Academic Hawaii", will kick off its 2nd season right here on KFVE. This exciting high school quiz show will air on Monday nights at 7pm, and repeat the following Sunday at 6pm. Last year, 27 schools- public and private, small and large, O'ahu- and Neighbor Island-based competed in this scholastic showcase that proved just how smart many of our local high school students are.

When we initially conceived of doing "It's Academic" locally, we firmly believed that the cream of the academic crop of any high school in this state could compete well vs. learned peers from any other local high school. Lo and behold, our first year finalists were all from public schools- Kaiser High, Kauai High, and our eventual winner- Waiakea High School. This year, we have 27 schools again lined up to take their shot at the title, with visiting schools from Molokai, Maui, and Kauai included in the mix against returning and new O'ahu high school teams.

Shows such as this would not be possible without our great sponsors, who realize that if we want to acknowledge, value, and promote education and not just talk about it how it's important all the time, sometimes funds are required to make a property such as this TV show come to fruition and come to your living room. Guest questioners on "It's Academic Hawaii" 2013 will include top elected officials and news personnel from our Hawaii News Now team, alongside our host, Hawaii News Now anchor Keahi Tucker. Get your high school brain in gear, and join the fun, as "It's Academic Hawaii" season #2 premieres on KFVE on Monday, May 6. Think about it…
