AJHA Trivia Scavenger Hunt

Ten trivia questions about the American Journalism Historians Association will be posted over the course of the convention--five per day. All answers can be found on the website, though it might take some searching!

Stop by between sessions to see the latest question. Each question only will remain on the site until the next one is posted.

At the end of each day, send your answers for that day's questions to ajhaconvention@gmail.com with Scavenger Hunt in the subject line. The person who submits the most correct answers the fastest each day will win a personalized AJHA prize.

Congratulations to our winners!

Day 1: Ollie Gratzinger, Duquesne University
Day 2: Kim Mangun, University of Utah
