Granite State Challenge, the New Hampshire public television game show, has been airing at least a dozen years longer than the Concord High School contestants who will kick off the show’s 30th season have been alive.

Last fall, 52 high schools across the state competed for 16 spots on the show.

Concord High, which claimed one of those spots, opens the season against Portsmouth Christian Academy of Dover tonight at 6 on NHPTV Prime.

On Feb. 22, Bow High School will compete against Bedford High School. On March 29, it will be Newfound Regional High School’s turn, in a matchup against Plymouth High School.

Teams that advance will compete in succeeding weeks until one emerges as the winner – leading to a showdown with their counterparts from Massachusetts.

The show features questions in math, science, social studies, language arts and fine arts, as well as current events.

The winning team receives $1,000, a trophy and a banner for their school. The runner-up gets $500 and a trophy.

The program’s primary sponsor is Unitil.
