Eight students from Morton School of Excellence, 431 North Troy, beat back challenges from six schools in a 2-round sudden-death trivia contest. Teams consisted of eight students each from 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grade. The schools competing were: May Community Academy, Ryerson Elementary, Libby Elementary & Middle School, Oglesby Elementary, and Whistler Elementary.
This is the 2nd annual Scholastic Spectacular hosted by the YMCA of Metropolitan Chicago. It was a night of trivia and entertainment from participants of its Community Schools Initiative. The event was held in the auditorium of the Chicago History Museum. The Morton Step Team also performed after each semi-final round.
