How the Challenge Works

To celebrate Women's History Month, the MCC Libraries are challenging you to learn about some of the important contributions that women have made to literature, politics, history, and more. Each day from March 1-5 a new question will be available to answer. Participants will have until March 31st to complete the challenge.

Terms of Entry

For each day of the challenge, enter your name, MCC email address, the answer(s) to the question(s) of the day, and a permalink (if appropriate) to where you found the answer on the entry form provided. Every day you participate, you'll be added to a raffle for a chance to win a $25 gift card to the MCC Bookstore. 10 prizes will be given out. Only currently enrolled MCC students are eligible for the raffle. Others are welcome to participate, but won't be included in the raffle. One entry per person per daily question(s) will be eligible for the raffle. Only 1 prize will be awarded per person.

Win Prizes!

Each day between March 1-5 a new tab and a new challenge will appear on the guide. Participants will have until March 31st to complete the challenge. Click on the tab to see that day's question(s). Submit your answer(s), the permalink to where you found the answer (if appropriate), and your contact information to be entered for a chance to win 1 of 10 $25 gift cards to the MCC Bookstore.
