Register for Trivia Weekend, the 50-hour fact contest to be broadcast Feb. 15-17 on radio, TV and the Internet.
The marathon’s theme is “Trivia University,” a nod to St. Cloud State’s Sesquicentennial celebration.
Teams will tackle more than 450 questions on all things St. Cloud State. Among the queries will be visual questions and audio questions.
Among the question writers are Chad Schmitz ’98, a St. Cloud State technology coordinator, Bruce Petersen, retired Stearns County dispatcher and jailer, and Tom Steman, university archivist.
The poster was designed by Wesley Beskar ’13 ’15, TV studio engineer, and Derrick Silvestri ’06, TV studio manager and UTVS advisor.
Peruse the poster for “Easter eggs” — jokes and messages visually embedded in its design.
The contest runs 5 p.m. Feb. 15 to 7 p.m. Feb. 17. The awards ceremony is 8 p.m. Feb. 17 in Ritsche Auditorium.
The after-party follows about 9 p.m. in the main room of the Red Carpet Nightclub, downtown St. Cloud. Performing will be Shake a Hamster Band, which writes, records and performs parodies of pop tunes exclusively for Trivia Weekend.
The band has worked Trivia Weekend for more than 30 years.
