League of Women Voters Civics Bee, Sunday, March 30

lwvTeams from Sudbury, Wayland and Weston will vie for the League of Women Voters trophy in the sixth annual Civics Bee. The Civics Bee will be Sunday, March 30, at 2 p.m., at Curtis Middle School, 22 Pratts Mill Rd. in Sudbury. It is free, and the public is encouraged to come and cheer for their town. Teams composed of middle school students, high school students and adults from each town will demonstrate their knowledge in the competition, sponsored by the Leagues in the three towns. Wayland team members are Jay Abdella, Tyler Brient, Yaniv Goren, and Sam Schectman (Middle School); Aidan Falvey, Ethan Hecker, Cara Lewis, Joshua O’Neil, Maxwell Seferian, and Joseph Spagnuolo (High School), and Melanie Levine and Steve Wynne (adults). Middle school coaches are Jacob Montwieler and Matthew McCormack and high school coaches are Kevin Delaney and Eva Urban.

The Bee’s theme this gubernatorial election year will be state government, but topics will include the histories of the three towns, all of which have recent major anniversaries of their founding. The main focus of the Civics Bee remains to challenge the teams’ overall knowledge of federal, state and local government. 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.

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.
