In order to support literacy in the community, teams will compete in two rounds of trivia at the 16th annual Knowledge Bowl, hosted by the Roswell Literacy Council and sponsored by Proliteracy America and United Way of Chaves County on Sunday.
Teams will check in at 2 p.m., and the game will start at 2:30 p.m. in the Chaves County J.O.Y. Center, 1822 N. Montana. Entry fee for the first team from an organization is $100, and subsequent teams can enter for $80 per team.
“This year will be interesting,” Literacy Council director Andre England said. “It’s going to break loose.” By this she means people are encouraged to have creative team names, outrageous costumes and hats and even non-living team members such as an amoebic fly.
“There will be some twists and I think people will be surprised even if they are just watching,” England said. Audience members are welcome to go and cheer on their teams.
Teams should consist of four people plus one alternate and can be adults and children. There will be two 20-question rounds of trivia, some of which will deal with literacy.
“It’s fun for me because I enjoy sharing trivia,” England said. “It’s mostly entertaining, but also informing.”
