WorldQuest International Trivia Contest
Friday, March 18, 2005

Join MIC and celebrity host Dennis Douda of WCCO-TV for our fourth WorldQuest. Compete to test your knowledge of world events, flags, people in the news and geography. You don’t need to know everything about the world, since WorldQuest is a team game where you pool your knowledge and experience to win great prizes while supporting MIC’s program in the schools! Teams comprise eight members, and prizes are awarded for the first, second and third place. If you don’t have a team, come anyway! MIC will organize teams for people without one. A great way to meet new people and learn more about our world!

Here are some questions from last year's competition:

1. Which one of these countries opted not to adopt the Euro?
