We have set up a self-paced Kahoot challenge, the first 10 registrants will contend against each other and against the challenge questions.  This Kahoot will be live for one week – the challenge starts 3/3 at 10 AM and ends on 3/10 at 10:00 AM.

Once our all of the competitors have registered, we will send an email with a link to that specific game in Kahoot. You do not need to create an account in Kahoot, you just must open the link on a device (mobile, laptop, or desktop) with a web browser. At the beginning of the game you must set up a nickname in Kahoot. Try to use part of your name (three consecutive letters from your last name) so we are able award our winners and frequent participants.
Rules of the Game:
Each question is multiple choice, only one of the four choices will be correct, and there are 30 seconds to answer each question.
You must click "NEXT" to progress to the next question.
Kahoot is supported on the latest two versions of Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Edge, and Internet Explorer. Sponsored by Williamson County Public Library.
