Granite State Challenge

Plymouth Regional Bobcats Bring Home the Trophy

It was the battle between two Grafton County teams in the GRANITE STATE SUPERCHALLENGE championship game.

Littleton High School was in the finals for the first time in school history. The team was the smallest public school competing this season, with only 213 students. 

The Bobcats of Plymouth Regional High were more seasoned competitors. They played in the 2018 championship game and took home the title in the 2013 season and the 1995-96 season. 

The win gives Plymouth Regional its third championship title tying with Salem High, Hanover High, Alvirne High and Winnisquam High for the most GRANITE STATE CHALLENGE titles.

Plymouth Regional High now goes on to represent New Hampshire in the High School Quiz Show Invitational at WGBH in Boston. They will be playing the championship team form Maine. Following that game, the Rhode Island and Massachusetts teams will face each other.

Tune in to NHPBS Saturday, May 18 from 6-7 p.m. to catch both games. The winner of each game will play for the High School Quiz Show Invitational title on May 25 from 6-6:30 on NHPBS.

2019 Season Bracket Click to Zoom


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.

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.
