  • Horizons has hired a leading trivia company to facilitate the game which will include a broad range of categories from general knowledge to Name-That-Tune to ensure that everyone can participate and have fun.

 

  • The game we will play is team trivia. Ticket purchasers will spearhead setting up their team. A team can consist of up to 6 households, including the ticket purchaser's own household. On game night, within a household, an individual or a couple sitting together sharing a Zoom screen, can play.

 

  • The top two ticket levels include a scrumptious, curated catering box for every household on your team. Boxes will be available for pick up on the day of the event. Details to follow.

 

  • If you are not playing on a team, individual tickets are available. You will compete against teams.

 

  • During each round of trivia, you and your team will be sent to a Zoom breakout room dedicated exclusively to your team.  Here, only your teammates' Zoom screens will be visible so you can work together in private on your team's answers to the questions.

 

  • At the end of each round of trivia, the host will bring everyone back together to share the answers, announce that round's winner and share the leaderboard ranking all teams.

 

  • Players will compete for 3 prizes:  1st place, 2nd place and Most Original Team Name.

 

  • During the evening we will take a couple of short breaks from the game to share information about Horizons at NCCS and to raise money during a voluntary text-to-give. 

 

  • Funds raised will support the full range of programs and services provided in Summer 2021 and the 2021-2022 school year.
