2019 Civics Bee

The Democratic Town Committee won the 2019 Needham Civics Bee, held on March 24 at the Broadmeadow School.

The Bee featured a full slate of 25 teams with a mix of 20 predominantly student teams and 5 predominantly adult teams. The winning team correctly answered the question “What is the current party composition of the U.S. Senate?”

See Civics Bee page for general information on the Civics Bee. A video of the 2019 Bee will be coming soon.
