ELIZABETHTON, TN (WJHL) – A local high school is getting national recognition and will be on national television this fall.

Elizabethton High School students entered a competition to “rethink high school,” it’s called “XQ: The Super School Project.”

“It was a competition to completely revamp education, to get out of the traditional lecture and let students have a voice,” E.H.S. Senior English teacher Daniel Profitt said.

Out of hundreds of schools the E.H.S. team got 12th place and won $200,000. The team’s work was featured in a USA Today documentary. On September 8th at 8 p.m, you can tune in to CBS or ABC and see the team featured on a nationally televised special on the XQ: The Super School Project.
