Who holds bragging rights as the 2013 Westborough Education Foundation Trivia Bee Champions?  It is the team sponsored by Ball Financial, represented by Selectmen, George Barrette, Tim Dodd and Ian Johnson. “The Westborough Board of Selectmen look forward to another exciting Westborough Education Foundation Trivia Bee,” stated Ian Johnson from the Board. “As reigning champions, we look forward to the friendly but intense competition offered by the other teams, all in support of the tremendous work done by the Foundation in supporting the Westborough schools.”   Who will be this year’s Trivia Bee Champs?  

The 7th Annual Trivia Bee will be on Monday, November 3, 2014 at the DoubleTree Hotel in Westborough.  More than 600 people attended last year’s Bee!  There is no school the following day, so the WEF expects another record turnout.  

The Westborough Education Foundation is currently recruiting teams and planning for a fun-filled event that will challenge teams to bring forth their best and brightest to compete in the contest.  As in past years, the Bee will feature questions about New England sports, popular culture, government, science, arts and literature, and Westborough history.  In addition to the Trivia Bee entertainment, there will be kids activities, silent auction items, raffles, food and music.

The Trivia Bee is the Westborough Education Foundation’s largest single fundraiser.  Last year, the event raised more than $16,000 to support educational grants to teachers and administrators from across all six of Westborough’s public schools.  WEF is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing financial support to foster excellence and innovation in education in Westborough.  The grants allow teachers to develop creative programs in literature and language, the arts, technology, social studies, science and math.  Grants totaling over $19,000 were awarded in 2014 for creative and innovative programs and events.

Sponsoring the Trivia Bee is a great way to show your commitment to education.  Sponsors can use their own trivia buffs or request a team from the schools and community to represent them.   Neighborhood groups, local businesses, and non-profit community organizations are all welcome and encouraged to sponsor a team.  For information about teams, please contact Maureen Johnson:  maureenj1@verizon.net.
