Using the CD-ROM version of Trivial Pursuit, high school teams of three students compete for prizes including a Thinkpad Android Tablet, $500 scholarships to Hudson Valley, computer software, and scientific multi-function calculators.

The event is co-sponsored with the Hudson Valley Community College Foundation. Donations are solicited by the Foundation for the prizes and a reception.
