Trivia Night

Virtual Trivia Night 2021

The District 39 Educational Foundation’s 9th Annual Trivia Night was held on Saturday, April 17th from 6:30 – 8 pm. The event looked different this year as it was the Foundation’s first Virtual Trivia Night. The Sporcle Trivia Master led 58 teams through multiple rounds of trivia spanning various topics involving point wagering and strategy.

Even though it was a virtual event, teams still chose to get creative with themes and names. The grand prize, won by “Vandalay Industries” was a summer fun basket (valued at $500)! The Best Team Theme went to the “Cow Poke Kirley’s,” and the Best Team Name was “Youronmute”. There’s no lack of fun and creativity amongst this community!

Overall, Trivia Night was a fun night shared with family and friends and helped raise funds to support the D39 Educational Foundation.

Trivia Night 2020

The District 39 community never fails to impress with their clever Trivia Night team themes and costumes as well as their amazing trivia skills! This proved true again at our 8th annual Trivia Night fundraiser on Saturday, February 1st at St. Joseph School in Wilmette.

Trivia Night 2019

For the 7th year of Trivia Night, we changed up a lot, but made sure the fun was amped up as well! A new location at St. Joseph School created a different atmosphere. Sporcle Trivia Master and Jeopardy Champion Seth Wilson led the 19 teams through new types of trivia rounds requiring point wagering and strategy. We even added a Super Bowl Squares game to our raffle and Heads or Tails game for added fun and fundraising. The evening ended with a time for dancing and socializing so teams could mingle.

Congrats to Team Livin’ On A Square for their victory over the pack in the last trivia round!

Trivia Night 2018

Trivia Night 2018 was a fabulous success as a Foundation fundraiser and a night of fun for those attending! Costumes were clever, questions were tricky, raffle prizes were fantastic, and the new photo booth was a hit.

The Nineinsteins

We learned that we are not all smarter than 5th graders. This year’s spelling bee round was a challenging way to earn team points.  As usual the Heads or Tails game, raffles and this year’s live auction all added to the evening’s excitement and fun!

Congrats to the I Like Pig Butts and I Cannot Lie team for their tie-breaker victory over the Very Stable Geniuses!








Trivia Night 2017

Saturday, February 4th at the Masonic Lodge in Wilmette was the place to be!  More than 200 excited trivia fans and friends assembled dressed to match their teams’ themes.

Competition was intense as Another Brick in the Wall, Masonic Monsters of the Midway, Trivia Newton John, Cards Against Humanity, and Never Mind the Trivia teams wracked their brains on a wide variety of trivia.

The winner of the 5th Annual Trivia Night was decided after the auction rounds which vaulted Parents Against Humanity to firstplace.
