Génies en herbe

Génies en herbe (Budding Geniuses) was a Radio-Canada television program in which students representing their école secondaire (Quebec high schools) participated in trivia tournaments. Tournaments also took place in French-speaking communities outside Quebec, such as Saint Boniface, Manitoba. Reach for the Top is an English Canadian equivalent. It was the French Canadian equivalent to the US and international game show It's Academic.

After the end of the TV series, the tournaments continued under the aegis of several regional school organizations.

Recently (January 2011), the show was started once more on Radio-Canada in a pan-Canadian format. This newer version is called "Génies en herbe: l'aventure" in which four teams travel around Canada to discover seven different cities. The quiz is then heavily oriented on the culture and history of the cities visited in the current episode. The four teams are the Maritimes, Ontario, Québec and the West of Canada.[1]
