About the series

CANADA'S SMARTEST PERSON JUNIOR is a must-see, family-friendly series that's an exciting evolution of CBC's hit competition format, Canada's Smartest Person.

Over six weeks, 12 remarkable kids aged 8-12 battle it out for their chance to be named "Canada’s Smartest Person Junior."

Each week, they take on fun and spectacular challenges that test their smarts in six categories: Physical, Musical, Social, Linguistic, Logical and Visual. They must prove they have what it takes in every category or face elimination.

It's an entertaining and action-packed competition as young competitors compete for the coveted title with the whole country cheering them on.

Along the way, Canadians discover that intelligence comes in all shapes and sizes — and doesn't always mean having straight As.
