Now that you’ve warmed up your news sense, try the online version of the quiz at spokesman.com/newsquiz. Top entries to the online quiz go into a weekly drawing for a $50 gift card to the Davenport Hotel, and all entries this week go into a drawing for movie tickets and four tickets to an upcoming EWU men’s basketball game. To give you a leg up, two of these questions are included in the online quiz.
Last week’s winners are Ryan Barbieri, of Spokane Valley, who won the Davenport gift card; Richard O’Brien, of Spokane, who won the EWU game tickets; and Weldon Diane Kelly-Riley, of Potlatch, Idaho, who won the movie tickets.
