AAJA Chicago’s Trivia Bowl is a test of knowledge and wits and will serve as a fundraiser for our 2022 internship scholarships.

Teams of up to eight people will compete in multiple rounds of trivia for AAJA Chicago’s 2021 Trivia Bowl, hosted by ESPN reporter Michele Steele. Whether you’re a group of gumshoes or die-hard fans of razor-sharp trivia questions, put your brains to the test while contributing to a great cause.

If you have a gang of trivia geeks who want to try their hand in this battle royale, you can register as a team under a team name. Your email address will be used to assign you to your unique team room — so each player will need to register with their own email address.
If you’re a solo rider and are looking to join a group, we’ll set you up!

The event is free with a suggested donation of $25/person. We hope this will make it easier for more people to participate while still helping our chapter become financially strong and continuing our internship program.

AAJA Chicago’s annual Trivia Bowl serves as the primary fundraising source for our scholarship program that supports Chicago-area internships at some of our city’s top newsrooms. Over the years, we’ve had college interns pursuing their dreams at Block Club Chicago, the Chicago Sun-Times, the Chicago Tribune, Modern Luxury magazines, Telemundo Chicago and several local TV stations. These vital experiences make it possible for students to build their portfolios, hone their craft and forge connections that will help them launch their careers — all of which are central to AAJA’s mission.
