Win $5 coffee card if you can answer Spokane’s Catalyst Award trivia challenge

The annual Spokane community Catalyst Awards take place this evening, starting at 4 p.m., at GU’s McCarthey Athletic Center.

We’ll give a $5 coffee card to the first reader who can answer two of the following Catalyst Awards trivia questions correctly:

  • In what year did the Catalyst Awards start?
  • Which group started the awards?
  • How many years have the awards been handed out?
  • Name one other Spokane-area nonprofit group that at one time actively promoted tech-education or tech growth but is no longer around (it can’t be the same as the answer to No. 2 above).

Place your answers here, or send them to business@spokesman.com, with the subject “Catalyst.”

 

Are you jacked about Spokane’s Catalyst awards? Maybe our trivia contest will help

Wednesday evening is the annual Spokane Catalyst Awards ceremony. In honor of the event Office Hours on Wednesday will host a Catalyst Trivia Contest. Some nifty award will be given to the winner, nearly as good as (and perhaps more valuable than) a Catalyst.

The nominees cover several categories listed below. The awards start at 4:30 p.m. at McCarthey Athletic Center, at Gonzaga University. Dr. Thayne McCullogh, the new president of GU, will take a role.
