As a part of the U.S. Independence Celebration Week, on the 29th of June, America House hosted a Jeopardy Game event. The event started at 6 o’clock and took place at the America House Chisinau center. People of all ages were welcomed, but mostly teenagers attended the event. Approximately 25 participants had the chance to test their knowledge about U.S. culture and history, by forming teams, answering questions, and winning prizes. The players not only learned something new about the United States and its many holidays, but they also had fun alongside their team members.
The event helpers were 5 volunteers from the America House Chisinau, which greeted the participants, helped them throughout the event, and managed any issue that occurred. When the participants came in, the volunteers handed out stickers, which indicated what team each person was supposed to be on. There were 4 teams, of 4-5 members each. When everyone had found their team and had the chance to get to know each other, the event started. Firstly, two volunteers gave a short introductory presentation about the game Jeopardy, the rules of playing, and the history of the game. Shortly after, the game started. Each team went one by one, choosing what question from a specific category they wanted to answer, based on the number of points it was worth. If they answered correctly, they would win that amount of points, but if they answered incorrectly they would lose that same amount of points. After multiple rounds of questions, team 2 won the game and all the members received exclusive prizes on behalf of America House. A second game took place after, with team 3 winning the competition.
After the event was finished, the participants had the chance to explore the center and take some photos with the other volunteers. Everyone had fun and the event was a total success!
