Classics Challenge Details

The Classics Challenge is a contest open to all students at the University of Winnipeg. Each week throughout February and March, two questions or challenges (one easy and one hard) will be posted on the Classics Club blog. Contestants will submit their responses for points - the top three contestants who have earned the most points throughout the challenge will receive wonderful prizes courtesy of the Classics Club and the UofW Classics Department.

Have some fun!

Rules & Regulations

~ Contestants may answer both or either of the questions each week. Hard questions are worth up to 10 points, easy questions are worth up to 5 points.

~ Answers are subject to deliberation by the contest committee and may not receive full points (the more thoroughly you answer, the more points we'll give you! Impress us).

~ Points totals will be posted online each week so you can keep track of where you stand and how many points you earned for your previous answers.

~ New questions will be posted on Mondays from February 1st until March 29th.

~ Responses must be submitted by 11:59pm the following Sunday. No answers will be accepted after this deadline.

~ Responses must be submitted via the form associated with that week's question on the Classics Club's blog. Do not use forms from previous weeks - your answers will tragically be lost forever. In the event that you are unable to access the blog, or the forms malfunction, you may submit your responses as an e-mail to

~ We encourage you to do research to find your answers, but please don't plagiarize - we'll laugh to ourselves and then give you zero points.

~ Prizes: when prize packages have been finalized, details will be changed here. 1st place - prizes valued at $50, 2nd place - prizes valued at $30, 3rd place - prizes valued at $20.
