As the summer break sets in for most students, the Common Knowledge Scholarship Foundation (CKSF) rolls out with a scholarship based on F. Scott Fitzgerald’s book, “The Great Gatsby.”
The scholarship was inspired by the recent wave of Gatsby mania brought on by director Baz Luhrmann’s film adaptation of the novel. As a result, fans will have the chance to test how much they truly know about the extravagant and glitter-filled story.
The Challenge Round starts July 14, with the top 25% of scorers advancing to the Championship Round. Scoring is based on a combination of time and accuracy. Everyone is eligible to participate, and the highest scorer will receive a $250 scholarship.
