The ninth annual League of Women Voters’ Civics Bee will take place Sunday, April 2, at 2 p.m.
Teams from Sudbury, Wayland and Weston will vie for the Civics Bee trophy. The Civics Bee is sponsored by the Leagues in the three towns.
The Bee will be held at Curtis Middle School, 22 Pratts Mill Rd., in Sudbury. The Bee is free, and the public is encouraged to come and cheer for their town. The League of Women Voters of Sudbury is host this year.
The special theme section of this year’s Bee is the United States Supreme Court and judicial system. The main focus of the Civics Bee remains to challenge the teams’ overall knowledge of federal, state and local government, with questions in all of those categories.
The Civics Bee teams are composed of six middle school students, six high school students and three adults from each town. The Leagues are currently seeking volunteers for the teams. If you are interested, contact the League of Women Voters in your town.
The Bee Master, or moderator, will be Jo-Ann Berry of the Acton Area League. Richard Albert, assistant professor at Boston College Law School, a specialist in constitutional law, democratic theory and comparative constitutional law, will again be the judge. Avery Chaplin of Weston is providing graphics and technical assistance.
The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan political organization which encourages informed and active participation in government and works to increase understanding of major public policy issues.
