The Jeopardy! is one of the traditional tournaments held each season on the TV quiz show Jeopardy! Contestants in this tournament are primarily high school students, and between the ages of thirteen and seventeen. The daily syndicated version of the show has conducted Teen Tournament each season since 1987 (Season 3), with two being held in Season 23 (2006–07) and Season 35 (2018–19), making this the only two times in the daily syndicated Jeopardy!'s 35 year history that there were two Teen Tournaments held in the same season. Because of the Jeopardy! Battle of the Decades, the Season 30 Teen Tournament aired after regular non tournament play has ended (July 21 to August 1, 2014). There was no teen Tournament in season 31 (2014–15), season 32 (2015–16) and season 34 (2017–18).
