The Strongsville Education Foundation (SEF) was created by a small group of concerned community leaders and established to encourage and inspire excellence in our schools. We provide incentives to continue high performance standards, preserve valued traditions, and provide money for needs that are beyond traditional funding. We believe that these dollars will continue and enhance the educational excellence that Strongsville parents and citizens have come to expect. SEF has a mission of collecting and distributing funds to promote excellence in education. Distribution of funds may be accomplished through student scholarships, grants for innovative classroom projects, or for a special need of the school district. In addition to managing the affairs of the non-profit organization, the board of trustees must approve the distribution of funds.

Beginning in the fall of 1996, as the World Series of Trivia, this trivia-rich signature event has been hosted by the Strongsville Education Foundation as an annual fund-raiser. Over the years the event evolved with many different features, but the core has been an opportunity for groups to compete and showcase their trivia knowledge and expertise. In 2010 the name transitioned to March Trivia Madness, drawing from the popular March NCAA Basketball Tournament, with changes to the format of the event. This year the name was changed to fit the time of year. Also for the first time Trivia will be held at the Strongsville Rec Center. This year we will be adding a 5th Grade Participation Level.
Broadcast each year on the school district cable channel, the event has become a favorite for viewers throughout the community. Most important, the event continues to generate significant financial support for the Foundation and its mission. Over the years the Trivia contest has raised about $200,000 to advance the learning and growth of our kids.
This will be the 18th Annual Trivia event and it is bigger and better than ever! Players and spectators have fun with a fantastic purpose. We’re delighted to bring it to the community, and look forward to continuing this long and rewarding run. We hope you will join us as a Team or a Sponsor or come out to see all the activities.
