The Iota Chi Chapter of Phi
Theta Kappa Honor Society is hosting a Trivia Night contest and
fundraiser on Feb. 28 at 6:30 p.m., at the Meyer-Evans Student
Center on the Lincoln College campus. The event is open to the
public and everyone is invited to participate. Proceeds from this
year's event will support Iota Chi's chapter initiatives, most
notably, Special Olympics of Logan County.
The cost is just $10 per person to enter, with a maximum of eight
people per team. A $100 cash prize will be awarded to the winning
team. In addition to the trivia contest, the event will feature a
silent auction and a 50-50 cash drawing.
Anyone interested in
registering their team should contact Assistant Professor Spring
firstname.lastname@example.org or 217-871-9639.
John Malone, WLNX-FM station manager and assistant professor of
broadcasting, will serve as master of ceremonies.
Iota Chi will provide free popcorn. The college snack bar will
open at 6 p.m., with items for purchase including burgers, fries,
cheese sticks, beverages and other tasty treats.
Brittany Meador, a sophomore from Lincoln, is chapter president
for Iota Chi. When asked about the importance of the fundraiser, she
responded: "Our chapter is excited about making a donation to
Special Olympics of Logan County outside of the funds raised by
Lincoln College's Polar Plunge team. We hope everyone will enjoy a
fun-filled night of trivia while contributing to a wonderful cause!"

The chapter has been participating in the
Honors in Action
research project initiated by Phi Theta Kappa headquarters to
investigate the "Culture
of Competition" (PDF). The chapter chose to examine the
benefits of Special Olympics, and most important, the way the
competitions enhance the lives of the athletes involved. As a
result of their research, chapter members have committed to
making yearly donations to Special Olympics of Logan County in
addition to participating in the Polar Plunge.
Phi Theta Kappa is the premier
national honor society for junior colleges, and Iota Chi has
recently completed four of five stars available to quality chapters.
