Finals: Kreitz/Chakravarthy/Klein - February 16

Fifteen of the brightest teenagers from all across the country have been cut to the final three, as Matt Klein, Papa Chakravarthy, and Andrew Kretiz compete in a two-day match. At the end of this rainbow, a pot of gold... $75,000 at least.

The first runner-up receives $25,000 at least, while the second runner-up wins at least $15,000.
