Hi-Q is an academic quiz competition for high school students.

Questions are drawn from 13 subjects and based primarily on the content of standard high school courses and general scholastic knowledge that students can be expected to have acquired at school or elsewhere. Guidelines for study and specific reference material are provided when the category is not usually a standard high school course.

Each school's team is composed of approximately ten students.

There are three rounds of contests during the regular Hi-Q season that begin in January. Each team competes once in each round, and three teams appear on stage in each contest. At the end of this series of 15 contests, the total points earned by each team in the three programs in which it competes during standings.

Top scoring teams automatically participate in the championship match. The second to seventh place teams compete in the semifinal series to determine two additional teams that will compete in the championship match.

In the championship match, first, second, and third place teams win cash awards for their schools of $2,000, $1,500, and $1,000, respectively.

A revolving trophy is presented annually to the first-place school and is held for display by that school throughout the year. If any school wins the trophy three consecutive times, the trophy will be permanently awarded to that school and a new revolving trophy will be introduced.
