6th Annual Are You Smarter Than an Elementary Student?
This year marks the 6th annual Are You Smarter Than An Elementary Student trivia night on April 20th from 6-9 pm. All proceeds will benefit Children First/Communities In Schools! Grab your smartest friends, make a team, and come out to compete for great prizes, as well as, the coveted title of Valedictorian at our new swanky venue, The Morris Hellenic Cultural Center!

All team members will receive:
  • A beer ticket (first round is on us!)
  • food
  • swag bag full of goodies
  • A fun school themed night of trivia by Trivia Goddess Emilie Travis
  • The chance to win amazing prizes
  • Most importantly, the chance to help our community’s most vulnerable children
Teams can have 4-6 players and the cost is $300 per team (the equivalent of $75 per person for a team of 4, $60 per person for a team of 5, or $50 per person for a team of 6). The more that play, the less you pay.

For $420 ($70 each), your Teacher’s Pet team will get to sit at the front of the class, be first in line for food and fun, get partial credit for close answers, and even get extra credit opportunities! In addition to food and brews, each member of your Teacher’s Pet team will receive 5 raffle tickets for even more chances to win big prizes!

Don’t want to have a team but still want to be a part of the fun while supporting a great organization? Be a Wallflower for $30! This ticket will include all of the perks with the exception of being able to participate in the trivia and compete for the trivia prizes.
