The Asian American Journalists Association (AAJA), New York Chapter, will be hosting a Trivia Bowl on Friday, May 18, at ABC News studios in New York City. The MC will be JuJu Chang. The proceeds from the event “go toward supporting students who pursue the journalism profession; providing increased training to AAPI journalists (through stipends/scholarships) so they can be effective leaders for positive change in the industry with a commitment to diversity in the newsroom, and forging stronger ties within the AAPI communities.”
AABANY is taking a table and we are looking for some fellow team members whose minds are filled with useless knowledge that comes in handy during Trivial Pursuit, Jeopardy and events like this Trivia Bowl. Maybe you have knowledge in certain categories, like sports, music, history, film or science. That’s fine; we can pool our trivial knowledge together to form a winning team.
I don’t think we get anything other than bragging rights if we win, but I’ve been told that when this event was held by AAJA in other parts of the country, the lawyers’ teams tended to do well, so I feel like our New York lawyers should do no less. Come on, New York attorneys – let’s represent!
Also, AABANY is helping to get APA judges to participate as judges for the event, scoring the answers submitted by the teams entered.
