Six teams of 5th graders from all of the TCPS Elementary Schools will test their knowledge and skills, answering questions from a broad range of categories. Each team also includes a celebrity guest from the sponsoring organization or school community. Morgan Stanley will sponsor the team from Chapel District Elementary School, and Mr. Curry Wilford, Financial Advisor, will participate as the team’s celebrity guest.
