Let's hear it for the Liberteens!

The Democracy and the Informed Citizen Symposium kicked-off with a community-wide competition. Friends and family members formed teams to compete in our Constitution Day Trivia yesterday at Cedar Bluff. Gameshow host Benjamin Franklin presided over the tournament, donning his tricorn hat. What seemed like a close match quickly escalated into a clear victory as trivia questions grew exponentially difficult. In the end, the aptly named Liberteens won with a 5 point lead. Event organizer and librarian, Circe McKinney, noted the team's seriousness and preparedness before trivia got underway. Three cheers for the team composed entirely of teens—hip hip hooray!
