Leaderboard Rules

Thanks for wanting to participate in the Homework Hotline Hall of Fame! Please read through the rules and privacy information and let us know if you have any questions!
How the Hall of Fame Works
Throughout the season, Homework Hotline provides opportunities for students to participate in our Hall of Fame, an ongoing interactive leaderboard. During each episode, students are asked a question which varies depending on the day of the week - Mondays are Math Mazes (Tricky math problems!), Tuesdays are Creature Teasers (Highlighting cool animals from around the world!), and Wednesdays are Brain Teasers (Topic changes each season - could be famous people or interesting places). For each correct answer that a student submits, they will get a point. Students are grouped based on their grades - 1st-5th, 6th-8th, 9th-12th. The student with the most points in their grade level at the end of the season will win a prize!
Hall of Fame Rules

  • HH Hall of Fame is for students in grades 1 through 12.
  • There will be only one winner per grade category (1st-5th, 6th-8th, 9th-12th).
  • Daily challenge questions can only be answered for 24 hours. Once a new questions is posted, correct answers to the previous day's question will no longer count towards the Leaderboard.
  • Answer can be submitted as many times as possible, however once the correct response is submitted it will only count ONCE. NOTE: If the correct answer is sent online and over the phone, the answer will only count once.
  • Winners will be announced the final week of the season.
  • Public television station employees' children and family members are not eligible to participate.
  • Winners of HH Hall of Fame cannot win two consecutive years in a row.
