Lafayette Education Foundation is looking for students to participate in their second annual You Got Schooled trivia fundraiser.

You Got Schooled puts four “Lafayette Famous” contestants against one another in three rounds of 1st
through 5th-grade trivia questions.

LEF says this year’s 2018 adult participants are Anita Begnaud with One Acadiana, Kevin
Blanchard with Southern Lifestyle Development, Catherine Schoeffler Comeaux with No Waste
Lafayette, and Jolan Jolivette with the LA Dept. of Disability Affairs.

The adult contestants have the option of assistance from 5th-grade students from Lafayette Parish public, private, parochial, and charter schools. The foundation is now looking for those 5th-grade students to participate in the trivia event.

Students interested are asked to submit a video to enter the competition. Application guidelines are listed below:

Eligibility: 5th grade Lafayette Parish public, private, parochial or charter school students in good
academic standing.
Application: Submit a video introducing yourself including your name, age, school, your hobbies, and
how you think you’d help the adult participants win in LEF’s You Got Schooled! Maximum video length
of 90 seconds. Include a statement of support from one of your teachers and a signed permission slip
from a parent or legal guardian. The statement of support and the permission slip can be found on

Deadline is Monday, September 10, 2018.

Guests are invited to attend the event which will be held at Vermilionville September 27, 2018, from 6:30 p.m. -9:00 p.m. in the Performance Center.

Tickets are $15 for students, $20 for adults and include a jambalaya dinner, dessert, and game show entertainment.
