Project READ's 23rd Annual Trivia Bee Buzzes Into Cañada Oct. 12

Mon, 8 October, 2012 at 8:34 am
The 23rd Annual Trivia Bee, presented by Redwood City Friends of Literacy, will be held Friday, Oct. 12 at 6:30 pm.

The Trivia BEE event is designed to promote literacy awareness and raise funds to support Project READ's mission of a literate community.

Established in 1987, Project READ is a free, volunteer-based literacy program serving adults, children and families.  It is committed to providing literacy training throughout the community. Tutoring lessons are student-centered, focusing on reading, writing and critical thinking skills and are supported by volunteers. Project READ's intergenerational programs are designed to break the cycle of illiteracy by surrounding adults and families with literacy services that promote education and a lifelong love of learning.

The Trivia BEE competition is fun and simple. Each team consists of three members with the Team Captain serving as the team spokesperson. Teams attempt to correctly answer trivia questions. One point is given for each correct answer. There are no penalties for wrong answers. Teams start with zero points for each new round. The qualifying round consists of 30 questions and the 15 teams with the highest score will compete in the semifinal round of 15 questions. The final round for the top five teams will have a total of seven questions.

The Zap Think Tank is the team to beat, as they've won the competition that past two years.
