Need Some Questions?
So you have arranged
everything else, you now need some quiz questions for the charity
fundraiser. By now you should have decided whether you will be writing
your own, buying the quiz or even having one written for you.
Here are some factors
you should consider before you decide on which path to take for
the questions for your quiz.
Is It Going To
Be A Themed Quiz?
If the answer is yes
then you need to be careful here.
If you purchase a themed
quiz pack you need to check with
the suppliers if they have sold any such quizzes in your locality
and if so when was the last one sold. The last thing you want
is to organise a James Bond themed quiz only to find out one was
held two weeks earlier in your location and they used the same
quiz pack you are thinking of using.
you live in a large city then this will not affect you the same
as if you lived in a village or small town.
If you research your
own trivia on the internet, then be careful how you select the
sites you choose to get the questions from. Do not just crib from
the first list of James Bond facts you come across following a
search on Google. Take time to look through a number of factual
sites about James Bond. This will give you more material to carefully
craft your quiz into a well balanced quiz.
How Many Questions
And Rounds Do You Need?
The normal quiz consists
of 10 rounds, each round of 10 questions. It is up to you to decide
on the categories for the rounds. With a charity event like this
it is best if you have at least a couple of rounds associated
with the charity, if possible. Even for larger charities like
Cancer Research UK you can have a round based on them.
For Example: A round
on Cancer Research UK
What were the names of the two charities that merged together
to form Cancer Research UK?

is the name given to the annual event where women walk/run over
a 5km distance?

These 4 questions were
gleaned directly from the Cancer Research UK website.
