Answering Trivia Questions For A Good Cause

The Junior Class at our local High School held a Trivia Night as a fundraiser for prom.  The idea was that trivia teams would be formed and would compete against each other, charging $10 per person on each team.

The announcement of the contest went out about 3 weeks prior, and the team started to form.  Eventually we had 8 plus a spare.

There were 10 rounds with each round consisting of 10 questions—all from different categories such as Geography, Sports, History, etc.  The same categories were used for all the rounds.  Foe example, question #1 was Geography is every round.

We wrote our answers on paper—10 sheets numbered 1 -10, and handed them in at the end of each round.  Answers were scored and points tabulated—10 points for each correct answer.  At the end of each round, balloons were distributed to tables.  Gold balloon for first place, silver for second, and the black balloon honored the team that was in last place.

Our team, The Mouseketeers, was very well rounded.  What was especially fun was that four of us used to play trivia games as kids, so it brought back a lot of great memories.  Some things NEVER change!

At the end of the third round, the gold balloon was placed on our team’s table, and never left.  We won the contest and each of us brought home a trophy.

One of my friends made this lovely crown for me to wear and deemed me the team captain. 

We must return next year to defend our title!

P.S.  There was NO Disney trivia.  Hint, hint. . . for next year!  Click here to read about Disney trivia contests.

Oh, and the boy got to bring home the balloon.
