Firefly has been the sponsor of the annual Toronto Brain Bee since 2011. This year the competition took place Friday, March 31st, at the University of Toronto. With over 100 students from across the GTA competing it was an exciting afternoon. After 3 rounds of competition the top 3 competitors were: Prerana Keerth (1st), Yashan Chelliahpillai (2nd) and Syed M. Raza (3rd).
UPDATE: Congratulations to Prerana Keerth who placed first a the Toronto Brain Bee on March 31st, and continued on to another victory by placing first at the National Brain Bee at McMaster University on the weekend. This makes Prerana the top brain in Canada, taking the title after a gruelling final round of 20 questions that had to be answered orally — and in less than seven minutes. We wish you the very best as you travel to Washington in August to the International competition!
