Great Midwest Trivia Contest
This Chicago restaurant serves both Italian beef and shrimp egg foo young, and may also be mistaken for a file extraction software. The street on which it is located is the first name of a man whose last name is the first name of a different man who began his own DIY cake decorating business. The man who shares his name with this street has written a book which purports that those born between November 22 and December 21 are “fond of horses.” On page 21 of that book, there is a car. What does the car say?
Over 50 years ago, Lawrence University’s radio station WLFM-AM started the Great Midwest Trivia Contest, a 50-hour research-based trivia event. If you enjoy answering complicated questions (like the one above - last year's final question) or completing action challenges such as “creating and performing the best love song in under 10 minutes,” sign up to express your interest in participating on the Great Midwest Trivia Contest team! Student Activities and Science Center Programs is teaming up to present this weekend-long event complete with food and fun for participants of the contest. The contest begins at 8pm on Friday, January 24, 2019, and ends on Sunday, January 26, at midnight. (This is the weekend right before second-semester classes begin on January 27.) Contest headquarters will be held in the Living Room of the Science Center.
