Trivia Game Winners Awarded

<p>By Joanna Tung<br /> Campus Reporter</p> <p>Three National Taiwan University (NTU) students who answered the most questions of this kind won a trivia game held by 10 leadership education clubs of different universities, including National Taiwan Normal University (NTNU), at NTNU Union Building today.</p> <p>&quot;We want our club members to have world view and knowledge, and holding a competition is a more interesting way to achieve our goal,&rdquo; said Tsai Chung-yung (蔡宗諭), the consultant of NTNU leadership education club and a student of the NTU Graduate Institute of Communication Engineering.</p> <p>The 10 leadership education clubs belonged to NTU, NTNU, National Chengchi University, Taipei Municipal University of Education (台北市立教育大學), National Taipei University of Education (國立臺北教育大學), Fu Jen Catholic University (天主教輔仁大學), Tamkang University (淡江大學), Aletheia University (真理大學), Soochow University (東吳大學), and National Yang-Ming University (國立陽明大學).</p> <p>The questions, including multiple choice and short answer questions, concerned issues about environmental and species protection, world culture and geography, energy resources, international politics, economy, and organization, and the Internet.</p> <p>Competitors got more than 300 questions in advance, from which 100 to 200 questions would appear in the competition.</p> <p>In the competition, while the competitors were struggling with the questions on the stage, the audience also discussed enthusiastically in their seats because sometimes the host would ask the answers from the audience.</p> <p>Tsai said that competitors who wanted to win should answer quickly, have broad knowledge, and work as a team.</p> <p>&quot;We have strong faith in ourselves, and that&rsquo;s why we won the competition,&rdquo; said Kate Hung (洪筠絢), a member of the champion team and a sophomore in the NTU College of Law.</p> <p>Hung said that though they had discussed some strategies for the competition, they didn&rsquo;t use any and relied on their instant reaction in the competition.&nbsp; Hung also said that what helped them become the winner was the belief that they would know the answers to all the questions they were asked.</p> <p>Kao Kai-chun (高愷均), another member of the champion team and a sophomore of the Department of Mechanical Engineering of NTU, said that he was a little nervous in the competition, from which he learned that their common sense was not always right.</p> <p>Faye Wu (吳東佑), a sophomore of the NTNU Department of East Asian Culture and Development, said that his team lost the game because they had bad luck and got questions that they were not familiar with.</p> <p>But Wu also said that he learned a lot through the competition, including the meaning of leadership, the importance of cooperation and the thought that one plus one is more than two.</p> <p>JoJo Huang (黃韻蓉), the host of the competition and a student of the Institute of Technology Law of National Chiao Tung University, thought that the competition was a good start to broaden people&rsquo;s horizons because competitors could get the questions in advance, which allowed them to find the answers by themselves.</p> <p>&quot;We can gain knowledge through participating in trivia games like this,&rdquo; Huang said.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p>
