News quiz for local students-Week 5

It’s time for The Record’s weekly news quiz to test the knowledge of local students about current events.
Students at the elementary and high school level are invited to read through the paper to find the answers and then send them by email to our editorial team.
At the end of the month, any students who participate and answer the quiz questions will be entered into a draw to win a 16-GB Fire tablet.
Each time a student answers a different quiz, their name will be re-entered, increasing their chances of winning a tablet. Four will be given away over the next four months.
Don’t have access to The Record?
No problem.
All schools in the Eastern Townships School Board have access to the e-edition of the paper, so ask a teacher or principal for help to get connected.
