The South Woods Middle School seventh grade Trivia Team recently captured the CP Nassau Trivia Challenge championship. The team earned the right to participate in the championship after winning the school trivia competition. Schools from throughout Nassau County participated in the event. Now in its 31st year, the challenge brings students with great minds and good hearts together to help raise funds to benefit the programs and services CP Nassau provides for more than 1,800 children and adults with cerebral palsy and other developmental disabilities. According to CP Nassau’s website, it has become the organization’s most successful fundraiser thanks to the students, parents, teachers and administrators who support the effort. During the competition, each participating school provides a team of four students who collaborate on a 100-question trivia test. Each team member raises money for CP Nassau by asking family and friends for a standard donation for their participation. In winning this year’s event, the South Woods team answered questions on a wide variety of topics.
