Amherst x The Great Midwest Trivia Contest

Tony Bradburn believes that if you were to be on skiis, one lap around this lake would be a SERIOUS work out. Nearby this lake is a historical building within which resides a 10 foot sculpture of a historical Illinoisan politician. In the room with the single twin bed, there is a heart-shaped box on top of a dresser. What is in the box?

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) 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 in the Great Midwest Trivia Contest! Participants compete in teams that will likely be defined by class year. 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 9 p.m. on Friday, January 25, 2019, and ends on Sunday, January 27, at midnight. (This is the weekend right before second-semester classes begin on January 28.) Contest headquarters will be held in the Living Room of the Science Center.
