According to the foundation's press release, 34 teams made up of 275 participants competed to win a check for the Summit public school of their choice.

The foundation said that all funds raised will directly support innovation in Summit public schoolss, including STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math), and innovative classroom technology, including science lab materials, e-readers, museum field trips and theater productions.

"Education Foundation of the Summit has teamed with everybody to raise over $500,000 to support the Summit School District," said Brad Piehl, EFS chair. "Trivia Night is a lively, playful celebration of a community that cares about and supports our teachers and students."
