CultureQuest® for fame and glory

CultureQuest might be considered a trivia game or competition, but its intent has always been to promote and test cultural literacy. Facing questions that range from film to politics, from literature to geography, from music to history and further afield, Mensan teams of up to five members gather in their neighborhoods on a single day across the U.S. and Canada and, for 90 minutes, compete for cash prizes and cultural literacy bragging rights. Evolving from a simple trivia competition in 1990 between one region’s Local Groups, CQ is now truly the quest for cash prizes and bragging rights. With a rich history of volunteerism, it promotes and tests cultural literacy with a side order of fun.

Mensans T.J. Lundeen and Becky O'Neal founded CultureQuest as a competition between Region 6 Local Groups in 1990. After some success at a leadership weekend, and with the support of then-RVC Carol Hilson, the quest grew to have almost every group in Region 6 participate during the second year, and two teams of Board members were also invited to participate. In 1992, the competition went national; in 1997, teams from Mensa Canada participated. CultureQuest: The Next Generation began supporting youth teams in 1999.

Don't miss out on your chance to be part of the CultureQuest experience! Now in its 35th year, CultureQuest is the ultimate competition to test your cultural literacy and have a little fun while you're at it. Gather up your team and face the competition - you won't regret it! Deadline to register is March 31.
