Thank you to everyone who made the 2015 Are You Smarter a huge success through donations, participation, service, and coming to show your support! This event would not have been possible without you.

We would like to extend a huge thank you to our participating adults from St. Mary’s Hospital, Athens First Bank & Trust, Pure Barre Athens, BLAST Athens, Spin Revolution, and Athens Clarke-County Waste Reduction, Landfill, and Leisure Services. Additionally, thank you to the willing and enthusiastic kids’ teams, representing Ogelthorpe Avenue, Stroud, Alps Road, and Fowler Drive elementary schools.

The Bankers stole the top adult team spot from last year’s Bureaucrats, and Oglethorpe Avenue Elementary became this year’s leading kids team. Congrats to our new winners! This event is a lot of fun, but it’s also a fundraiser to support our efforts placing books in the hands of children who might not otherwise have access to books.

We greatly appreciate your efforts to help us further our work and push for greater education opportunities among Athens-area children. Please consider continuing to join us by volunteering, donating books, donating funds, becoming a sponsor, hosting a book drive, or just spreading the word. Your contributions could make a difference in the life of a child.


Thank you to our event sponsors!
