Did you know?

Wisconsin's given America more than just cheese

Games of trivia became popular in the 1960s when college students began to ask each other questions and answers about various topics. It took a while for people to warm up to the idea, but in 1969 the first trivia game was held at the University of Wisconsin–Stevens Point. Each year since then, a trivia quiz has been run to raise money for various charities. The competitions usually only contain college students, but they had also invited about 400 people. The longest continuous trivia competitions are the Great Midwest Trivia Contest and the Williams Trivia Contest. Such events inspired the creation of television quiz shows like Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? and Jeopardy!
