WASHINGTON —  A longtime area tradition is underway on Saturdays, and it’s one that shows off the smarts of area high school students.

“These kids are so smart, it’s humbling,” said WTOP’s Hillary Howard, who has hosted the Washington edition of “It’s Academic” since 2011.

The world’s longest-running TV quiz show that kicked off its 56th season Oct. 8 pits students from three schools against each other for the bragging rights of who knows the most.

If you want to see if you can match wits with some of the region’s brightest students, tune in at 10:30 a.m. Saturdays on NBC Washington.

Click through the gallery above to see photos of the students from Washington-area schools who are competing each week.

Longtime followers of the show will tell you that the competition can be intense to watch.

“The intensity depends on the coach and the personal temperament of the kids. There are some kids I say hello to, and I think they just want me to go away. Others are  enormously engaging,” said Howard.

“All of them are passionate about knowledge and learning. These are young adults who will be lifetime learners.”

The full schedule of schools competing on “It’s Academic” is posted on the show’s website.

The show also has a Baltimore counterpart and a central Virginia show.

Giant Food, which has been funding the show for 50 years, continues its sponsorship.  Over the years, the grocery chain has given more than $3 million in scholarship funds to participating schools.

The Montgomery County Council recently recognized Giant’s anniversary with a proclamation.
