We have worked closely with all stakeholders to create a quiz programme which will encourage students to approach learning with a whole new perspective. Celebrating the importance of life-long learning, the TV Quiz Show premieres making learning a fun activity, exciting and engaging, revolving around learning or self-initiated learning satisfying the curiosity of inquisitive minds."

Over 1000 students nominated by their schools participated in the preliminary rounds which were held in regional test centres island-wide including Colombo, Kandy, Kurunegala, Galle, Matara, Jaffna, Anuradhapura, Polonnaruwa, Batticaloa, Nuwara Eliya and Badulla.
