2019

44 high school teams from across New Hampshire took a written qualifying test at Manchester Community College back in November. 14 of those teams scored high enough on the qualifying test to secure a spot in the 2019 season of GSC. Four additional teams were selected at random from a pool of schools that have not participated in on-air matches in the last two seasons. Those teams, Winnacunnet High School, Alvirne High School, Kingswood Regional School and Mascoma Valley Regional High School competed in two non-televised wild card games that determined the final two teams to compete on-air in the 2019 season.

GRANITE STATE CHALLENGE Gives academically talented students a platform in which they can receive the same accolades and recognition and generate school spirit in the same manner as their athletic peers. Develops and fosters good relations with participant schools, teachers and students. Introduces viewers to a representative sample of the future of New Hampshire. Serves as an educational resource for schools, parents and students.
