Compete in a 5-minute digital challenge with questions provided by NATE once a day from Wednesday, June 15th through Wednesday, August 31st, 2022.
Participants with the most correct answers will qualify to move on to Round 2 and compete for their chance at a trip to the finals in Tampa, FL. Ties will be determined by the least number of incorrect answers. When taking the test, the result from your first quiz attempt will count toward your entry for that day.
