    Now, I know I sound like a broken record here, but because of the outcome of this first summer trivia event, I feel like I need to repeat myself once more: the winner of this trivia tower event WAS determined by the extra three-point bonus question! Please take a quick thirty seconds to answer that bonus question because it is usually what stands between you and that first place prize from the Prize Wall! 

    Now for the moment we've all been waiting for! Drum roll please...

    Let's all give a BIG CONGRATULATIONS to @Mrinalini Qadir - you're the top WINNER of Vacations Trivia Tower!  You get to select one item off the Prize Wall! I'll be sending you a form shortly to fill out with your pick. 

    Everyone else: don't worry! There are three more weeks to win and we are super excited to see who climbs to the top of the Trivia Tower! 

    Best of luck and see you Wednesday for the start of week two's Trivia event!
