Are you smarter than a fifth grader?

Posted:
QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

Are you smarter than a fifth grader?? Well, apparently Brian Inman isn't.

Brian's team came in second to last in a game show style fundraiser to benefit the Junior Achievement program, which brings professionals into the classroom to work with students.

Community members from the medical, education and legal fields made up teams that challenged local fifth graders in the trivia competition.

Organizers say events like these are important to keep the program running.

"We can only receive funds through fundraisers like an event tonight, private donations and foundations so an event like tonight that brings community members with fifth graders who receive Junior achievement in their classrooms. This provides more opportunity for kids in Hannibal, Quincy," said Junior Achievement district manager Sue-ann Westhoff. 

Westhoff hopes Friday night's event raises between $6,000-$7,000.
