Know Your Heritage

"Know Your Heritage" is the title of a Chicago-based high school quiz show in which two teams of four students, each representing a school, compete to know questions about famous people and their cultural backgrounds. It is currently hosted by actor Greg Alan Williams, and a DJ named "DJ Ope-ski" as his sidekick. Several companies sponsor the show, including Jewel-Osco Grocery Stores and Walgreens Pharmacies.

Round One (The Head-to-Head Round)

In this round, host Williams reads a question with four possible choices to the teams. They have three seconds to ring-in, and if correct receive either 10, 20, or 30 points, depending on the question (now, all questions are worth 30 points, with a 300-point max for all ten). If incorrect, the other team can buzz-in and steal the points. After ten questions are asked, the round is over.

Round Two (The Huddle Up Round)

The two teams are shown one question with ten possible answers, four of them being correct. For 60 seconds, the teams write down their four answers, and they are revealed when time runs out. Each right answer is worth 25 points, 100 points max for all four correct answers.

Round Three

See round 1 for more info. When this round ends, a "Do You Know?" question is asked by the announcer, Tessa Spencer, and there are four choices, the correct answer being revealed after the commercial.

Round Four (The Face-Off Round)

For the final round, one member from each team writes down a wager for their total score (originally up to all of it, now only up to 250 points) upon answering one final question. The other members of each team have 15 seconds to write down the correct answer, and if correct, the points are added to their score, but if incorrect, the points are lost from the score. The highest scoring team advances to the next round.

Grand Prize

At the end of the grand championship show, the team with the highest score wins a $1,000 savings bond from the Illinois State Treasury as well as a trip to Disney World.
