A 16-year-old junior at Spain Park High School in Hoover has been selected to participate in the Jeopardy! Teen Tournament next week in Culver City, Calif.
Jeopardy! officials announced today that Kevin Yang is one of 15 teens chosen from among 20,000 contestants to participate in the tournament at Sony Pictures Studios.
Yang's family plans to leave for California on Sunday. The tournament is scheduled to air on TV April 30-May 11.
This was in the local paper Friday so I guess they are taping the teen tourney this week. A nice plug for the archive in the article as well.
Glad to have a local rooting interest in the tournament this year. I live maybe 20 miles or so from where he does.
