MEMBER TOURNAMENT WRITING OPPORTUNITY

From time to time, we're going to give you the topic of a tournament in advance. In a way, this will be a bit like the old Community Quizzes, giving you an opportunity to write a quiz on the given topic. Some of those quizzes will be selected for inclusion in an upcoming tournament - one per person. Unlike Community Quizzes, that tournament will also include quizzes that are already on the site. Sometimes the topic will be very specific - sometimes quite general, allowing for more creativity.

This first topic is KWANZAA

So, write a quiz on Kwanzaa, and possibly see that quiz be included in a tournament coming up the end of December. We'll know if you like this new member tournament idea by the number of quizzes we receive.

Do we need to put the word "KWANZAA" in the quiz title if we are writing specifically for inclusion in the tournament?

Kwanzaa is celebrated worldwide.

No, you do not need to put Kwanzaa in the title. As long as it is mentioned in the quiz, we'll be able to find it when we look for quizzes to put in the tournament.

Kwanzaa is a relatively new holiday - it was "invented" in the 1960s to honor folks' African heritage. It is not just celebrated in the US. Here is a link to the official Kwanzaa website.

Great idea - I'm in!
Nice motivation not just for the tournaments but to generate some quizzes on some different subject matter.
