7:00-8:30pm Hitchcock Nature Trivia Night: A monthly virtual trivia contest fundraiser

December 9, 2020—7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


Join us for a monthly online trivia contest fundraiser for environmental education. The quiz will test you on a wide breadth of science, nature and environmental knowledge. The winning team will split the award with the Hitchcock Center’s scholarship fund. 

  • Sign up as teams of 1–4 people, with a flat fee of $50 per team per game. The more teams, the bigger the prize (see table below), so invite your friends!
  • Advanced registration required and available up until the evening before the contest. Upon registration the team will be provided a Zoom link. 
  • Teams will be able to play as a team even if in different locations. Each team will be assigned a breakout room in advance, that will allow them to discuss answers as a team.  
  • The game will be played in 2 rounds of 15 questions with a break in the middle to score and learn where your team stands in the contest. 
  • We will need a minimum of 6 teams to play and have a maximum of 22 teams, with a maximum winning of $500 if 22 teams were playing (see table below) 
  • We will ask that all players follow the honor system and not consult other sources for answers while playing, we will have everyone do a playful oath at the beginning of play. 
  • The contest and questions are geared towards adults, in the future we may offer Family Nature Trivia Nights as well, stay tuned.
