Teams are asked a series of trivia questions and winning teams advance to higher levels of competition. The winning team “Stella by Booklight” from Christine Morrison Elementary will move on to compete at the Community Level challenge on April 24 with schools from the Fraser Valley.

The Christine Morrison team with teacher Leslie Caine, includes Elia Pym, Lucy Aung Thin, Noah Hughes, Brooklyn Kobes, Rowan Sheaves Chapman and Scout Harris.
