Brightest and Best


 

Brightest and Best is WXYZ's 40-year tradition recognizing the academic achievements of graduating seniors from high schools across metro Detroit. Each year, Channel 7 hosts a special event at WXYZ-TV and invites more than 200 honorees and their families to attend.

This year, our honorees will participate in a Twitter scavenger hunt throughout the day. You can follow along on this page and by using the #BrightestAndBest hashtag.

The student's profiles will be submitted soon. You can click on a name and read more information about our Brightest & Best honorees.
