Crowder College's Smarty Pants claimed second place, and the Methodist Saints, which were two-time previous champions, earned third place in the trivia competition.

A total of eight teams competed in this year's event. The teams were sponsored by Barry Electric, Cassville Rotary Club, Cassville R-4 School District, Commerce Bank, Crowder College, First State Bank, Freedom Bank and the Cassville United Methodist Church.

Donna Hayes, who served as master of ceremonies during the event, announced four rounds of trivia questions that covered a wide variety of subjects including history, sports, movies and science. Bonus points were earned through special challenges held between rounds.

The Cassville Education Fund, which is administered by the Cassville Community Foundation, will distribute its second round of grants this May. Last year, the fund provided grants for first grade reading software and games for a before-school program.

The Cassville Education Fund accepts donations, which are tax deductible, throughout the year. Checks should be made out to "Cassville Education Fund" and submitted at the Cassville Area Chamber of Commerce office on Main Street in Cassville.

For more information, call the chamber office at 847-2814.
