Victory was sweet for ‘Team CSC’, a group of friends (Marylou Carr, Dana Simon and David Cleary) who won in a sudden death pesticide round against ‘The Fam’ (family members Rebecca Steinitz, Mara Steinitz and Sam Putnam). The winning question? “What country won the gold medal in both men’s and women’s hockey at the 2014 Olympics in Sochi?” ‘Team CSC’ answered correctly with Canada and flew home with the coveted Trivia Bee Crown.
Many teams donned creative hats and costumes. Thompson School’s team ‘Green with Envy’ won the award for best costume with team members Jason Loeb, Eric Eddy and Peter Thompson clothed in bright green spandex shirts and head coverings representing their school’s environmental stewardship culture.
Over sixteen local businesses showed their support for public education in Arlington by sponsoring the event and donating a total of $6,900. All proceeds directly fund Arlington Education Foundation’s work in the Arlington Public Schools.
