About the competition
Four seasons ago, “Jeopardy!” had so many excellent teen contestants that the show hosted two Teen Tournaments.

How it works
Former teen contestants will reunite to face off in a 14-day special event with a $100,000 grand prize and a spot in the Tournament of Champions on the line. The format consists of nine quarterfinal games, three semifinals, and a two-day, total point affair final.

Monday, Feb. 20 – Friday, Feb. 24: Quarterfinal Games 1-5
Monday, Feb. 27 – Friday, March 3: Quarterfinal Games 6-9; Semifinal Game 1
