SHARPEN YOUR PENCILS: THE 2016 TEACHERS TOURNAMENT IS COMING

              

Sharpen your pencils, check your local listings, and get ready for the 2016 Jeopardy! Teachers Tournament presented by Farmers Insurance. Starting May 2, 15 teachers will compete over the course of two weeks for the title of Teachers Tournament champion, a grand prize of $100,000, and an invitation to the Tournament of Champions.

Since the 2016 Jeopardy! Teachers Tournament and Farmers’ Thank America’s Teachers program both focus on education, the partnership with Farmers Insurance is a natural fit. We’re excited to feature 15 teachers as contestants, and Farmers will give each one a $2,500 grant to fund classroom projects just to sweeten the pot.

The first week of competition will be held on Stage 10 at our regular studio in Los Angeles. Then, once the field has narrowed down to the nine semifinalists, we’ll change locations to DAR Constitution Hall in Washington, DC, for week two’s semifinals and finals games.

Tune in starting May 2 to catch all the action from Los Angeles, and see who will make the trip with us to Washington, DC. Be sure to like and follow us on Facebook and Twitter for all the tournament highlights and behind-the-scenes moments from the 2016 Jeopardy! Teachers Tournament presented by Farmers Insurance.
