The Fridley Area Learning Center’s E-lympics team earned a second-place finish at the state competition Dec. 8.
E-lympics is an online academic trivia team competition in which students answer subject related questions in math, logic, geography, music, art, English, science, history, politics and current events. Fridley’s team was matched against 43 other teams statewide for the tournament. The coaches for the team were ALC match teacher Jennifer Pearson and English teacher Jenny DeMars. “We are really proud of the students,” said DeMars. “Most questions involved many steps and were quite challenging. Students had to remain focused in order to complete questions. This was a fun and hard-working group.”
