DARIEN, Conn. — Who is Porter Bowman? He's the junior at St. Luke’s School in New Canaan who is competing in the 2016 "Jeopardy Teen Tournament" that begins airing next week.

Bowman, one of two Connecticut teens to compete in this year's tournament, contends for the tournament's grand prize of $100,000 in the two-week event. It was taped earlier this year at DAR Constitution Hall in Washington, D.C.

“The Teen Tournament is my favorite yearly event due to the energy and enthusiasm of our young contestants,” said "Jeopardy" host Alex Trebek. “Taping this year’s shows in D.C. only added to that feeling of excitement and also created a sense of occasion that was felt by everyone who participated in it.”

Michael Borecki, a junior at Darien High School, is another of the 15 teen contestants.

To find out how the teens fared on the quiz show, check out the tournament when it airs from Nov. 9 to Nov. 22. In Connecticut and metro New York City, "Jeopardy" is broadcast at 7 p.m. weekdays on WABC and WTNH.
