For 40 years, PBS39 has been producing the Valley's most popular high school academic competition, "Scholastic Scrimmage." Dr. Karen Walton, Vice President of Academics at DeSales University, quizzes top students from 39's participating school districts about all academic disciplines. Contestants try to answer questions more quickly than members of the opposite team. At the end of the "Scholastic Scrimmage" season the winning team is awarded $4000 for its scholarship fund, with the runner-upreceiving $2000. The winning team also receives medals, a plaque for their high school's trophy case, and the bragging rights of being the very "best and brightest" in the Lehigh Valley.

The program is hosted by

Dr. Karen Walton, Provost, DeSales University.
