In this fast-paced event, 10 teams of high school students from the four-county area will field questions about local history, geography, and geology, including two rounds based on photos. This year students will also face a multiple choice round. Two wrong answers and teams are out of play, leaving the last team standing to take home the Smackdown trophy. Students have been preparing for this event for weeks. Which team will face down the Quizmaster, answer the most questions correctly, AND be the last one on stage to take home the Smackdown trophy? Come and find out!

The Smackdown will take place at the historic Calumet Theatre, located at the corner of Sixth and Elm streets in Calumet, at 7:00 pm on Thursday April 26, 2018. The event is free and open to the public.
