Welcome to News Quiz!

Join us for News Quiz, KET’s weekly current events show designed for students. This interactive program features a 10-question quiz based on each week’s stories. This interactivity ensures your class stays fully engaged while improving their listening skills and knowledge of current events.

Your students will stay up to date with state, national, and international stories. There’s something for everyone from election coverage and technology innovations to inspiring artists and enchanting animals. And many stories include maps that help strengthen geography skills.
