launches its 11th season of School Duel, presented by sponsors  Chick-fil-A and BrightStar Credit Union.  School Duel is an exciting academic quiz show, designed to  reward and highlight intellectual student talent in South Florida’s  high schools, and serve as a positive educational tool for  students and teachers.
