South Woods Takes 2nd in Trivia Challenge

South Woods Middle School sent the winners of their annual sixth-grade school Trivia Challenge to the Nassau County Trivia championships, where they finished as runner-up. Although they fell just short of wining the title, students walked away with their heads held high, knowing that the event benefited Cerebral Palsy of Nassau County.

Sponsored by the Chess and Strategy Club, the CPN competition pitted South Woods students against teams from nine other schools at the CPN Center in Roosevelt. The South Woods team of Alex Larson, Matt Shafritz and Gianna Vecchio led for the entire competition until the very last question, when they fell in the tiebreaker round. Team member Zachary Goldstein was also a contributor to the team, but was unable to attend the event. Greg Ryan is the Project Beyond/enrichment teacher who advises the team. Great job by everyone!

Schools from all over Nassau County participated in the CPN Trivia Challenge event and raised significant funds for the organization.  Now in its 30th year, the Trivia Challenge event brings students with great minds and good hearts together to help raise funds to benefit the programs and services CPN provides for over 1,800 children and adults with cerebral palsy and other developmental disabilities.
