Westborough Education Foundation Trivia Bee Nov. 6

Westborough – The Westborough Education Foundation will host the 10th annual Trivia Bee on Monday, Nov. 6, at 6:30 p.m. at Westborough’s DoubleTree Hotel, 5400 Computer Drive.

As in past years, the bee will feature questions about New England sports, popular culture, government, science, the arts, literature, and Westborough history. In addition to the competition, there will be kids’ activities, silent auction items, raffles, food and music. Back again this year, Westborough High School will be demonstrating their robots.

The Trivia Bee is the WEF’s largest single fundraiser. The event is open to the public. A $5 donation per person ($20 family cap) which includes pizza, drink and dessert, is accepted at the door that evening. The 2016 event raised more than $17,000 to support educational grants to teachers and administrators from across all six of Westborough’s public schools. The grants allow teachers to develop creative programs in literature and language, the arts, technology, social studies, science and math. Grants totaling over $21,000 were awarded in 2017 for creative and innovative programs and events.

It’s not too late to sponsor a team for the Trivia Bee 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 nonprofit community organizations are all welcome and encouraged to sponsor a team.

For information about teams, contact Maureen Johnson at maureenj1@verizon.net. For more information about WEF, visit www.westborougheducationfoundation.com.
