Every spring since 1995, AEF has hosted the Arlington Trivia Bee.  This town-wide, family-friendly event draws over thirty teams of neighbors, co-workers, elected officials, school groups and community organizations to compete for the coveted title of Trivia Bee Champs.

Arlington Trivia Bee ~ hosted by Arlington Education Foundation

March 17, 2019 from 3-5pm

at Arlington Town Hall 

Join us for this celebration of (useless?) knowledge.

  • Test your knowledge on trivia categories such as Arlington trivia, sports, history, literature, pop culture, music, science and more.
  • Cheer on friends and maybe even laugh at yourself
  • Take in the lively atmosphere, heightened by creative team hats, quirky judges, and music

5th grade teams from each elementary school compete in the first round.  Come watch and see if YOU are smarter than a 5th grader… AEF provides kids’ activities so parents can relax and enjoy the event.

Register your team!

To enter, form a team of three contestants (adults only, please), and submit the registration form.  There is a $75 entry fee/team.  The individual fee ($25) for any Arlington teachers who participate is waived.  All proceeds help to sustain AEF’s work supporting students and teachers in Arlington.

Each participating team:

  • Will receive a ¼ page FREE ad in the Bee program (non-profit teams only)
  • May bring a banner to hang in the balcony and flyers or brochures for our team publicity table
  • Will be highlighted in our press releases, on our website and in social media

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 in 2018 Stratton School proved they were the ones to beat.
