Trivia Challenge

NCSU appreciates YOU!

We understand all employees will not be able to attend the 2013 Staff and Faculty Appreciation Day so we’ve created an online game just for you! Submit your responses to the below trivia questions by 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, March 6th and you’ll be entered in the drawing for free prizes and gift cards.

Multiple entries will not increase your chance of winning so please only submit your answers once. Although all trivia answers can be found on the NC State University website, we’ll reveal the correct responses on Friday, March 8th. All lucky winners will also be contacted by Human Resources on March 8th.
