Trivia Bee

March 25, 2018
Arlington Town Hall
Hosted by AEF.

What a Buzzing Good Time!

The 2018 Trivia Bee was one for the books.  More laughs, more teams, more contestants than ever before!  A record 32 teams competed for the coveted Trivia Bee crown and “Quizzical Responsibility”, Arlington’s elected officials Jennifer Susse, Dean Carmen and Joe Curro stung the competition.

For the second year, 5th grade teams from each elementary school competed in the first round and Stratton School proved they were the ones to beat.
