Trivia Night is Right Around the Corner!

How well do you know your trivia? Do you think you have the knowledge to play for cash prizes?

Come out and test your trivia knowledge for cash prizes! 1st place: $500.00, 2nd place: $300.00, 3rd place: $200.00!

College Activities Board will be hosting a trivia tournament on January 21, 2011 at 7:00p.m. in the Meridian Ballroom.  The trivia tournament will consist of teams of 8-10 members.   Of the members on the team, four members must be SIUE students. During the tournament, there will be 10 rounds consisting of 10 questions each.  Also, each round will have a brand new category. 

Did you think we would make it just that easy?

In addition to the possibility of cash prizes, participants in the tournament will be provided FREE snacks! 

If this sounds like something you would be interested in, registration forms are available in the Goshen and at the Kimmel Leadership Front Desk.  Registration is due by December 10th, 2010, to the Kimmel Leadership Center Front Desk.  Tickets are not needed to be purchased for this event.

If you think you and your friends have the knowledge and the determination to test those skills, come out and participate in the tournament!
