Westminster Student Wins $26,400 in Teen Jeopardy!

Westminster Schools' 13-year-old Nilai Sarda is back on the national stage and this time, it's as a Jeopardy! superstar.

Nilai Sarda, a 13-year-old freshman at Buckhead's Westminster School, won $26,400 on the Teen Jeopardy! episode that aired last week.

Sarda, who applied for Teen Jeopardy! during the first year he was eligible, placed third, beating out several other elite teens much older than he is.

You may recognize Sarda's name. He was the featured where he finished second overall at the age of 11.

"I was just amazed to make it on," Sarda said in a release from the show.

He said he will probably save some of the money for college or invest it. He plans to pursue a career in science, specifically at the European Organization for Nuclear Research, or CERN, the News India Times reports.
