Mtern trivia quiz champ donates prize to Brandcenter’s Social Justice Scholarship
As part of our Mterns’ orientation, we created an industry trivia quiz to provide a little friendly competition while testing their knowledge. The stakes? The winner received a $500 donation to the nonprofit of their choice. Alyssa Fea, a Strategy Mtern, was our winner. She chose to make her donation to VCU Brandcenter’s 2020 Vision for Social Justice Endowed Scholarship.
“When I won the trivia quiz, I knew that I wanted the donation to help equal the playing field for people of color,” said Alyssa. “It’s important not only to hire people of color in power positions, but also to give access to candidates and great talent that may not be able to enter the industry due to the high barrier to entry.”
The 2020 Vision for Social Justice Endowed Scholarship was created by VCU professor Berwyn Hung and his wife Vicki Hung who believe that education is one of the great equalizers. They created a trust to provide opportunities for people of color to enter one of the most influential industries in the world.
The 36 trivia questions range from Superbowl spots that changed the industry and others that never ran to Twitter wars and everything – and everyone – in between.
“It was challenging, but in a good way. I thought it was going to be straightforward and then I started to do it and I realized there’s word play, tricks, and all kinds of things in there,” said Alyssa.
Now it’s your turn if you’re up for the challenge. You can test your industry knowledge by taking the trivia quiz here and see how many you get right.
