DuBois, PA – The show must go on! The Junior Scholastic Challenge that was postponed due to snow last week has been rescheduled for tonight.

Carol Foltz, the longtime organizer of the event that’s been going on for 22 years for the middle schoolers and 32 years for the high schoolers, says it’s a unique competition that allows kids to test their academic skills.

The questions range from math, science, history, English, literature, and current events.
