Trivial fundraising: Louisiana college hosts trivia contest

THIBODAUX, La. (AP) - Got a knack for remembering random, somewhat useful information? A southeast Louisiana college wants you for its trivia contest this month, aimed at raising money for student programs.

Nicholls State University is hosting a Big Bayou Trivia Bash on Feb. 24 at 6 p.m. Cash raised from the competition is planned for student travel scholarships, technology upgrades and other items in the College of Arts & Sciences.

Winners of the trivia contest get cash or prizes.

Teams of six can sign up for $30 per person. They will compete in answering 10 categories of questions, such as history, sports, entertainment and Louisiana-themed. More complicated questions called brain buster challenges can win teams extra points.

Sign-up is available by calling 985-448-4386 or emailing trivia@nicholls.edu.
