Last Chance! Win Prizes in Pongo's Trivia Contest

The summer-long observance of Pongo Resume's 5th anniversary is winding down. The celebration began June 1, and since then we've given away 117 Pongo t-shirts and other fun prizes to people who answered the trivia questions we posted on Twitter. But out of the 140 questions we posted, 23 of them remain unanswered. And that means we still have 23 t-shirts and prizes to give out, and we want to give them to you! (We also welcome the many new followers we gained on Twitter over the summer.)

So, here's a chance to show off your trivia chops. Just be the first to answer one of the questions below in the comments section of this post, and we'll give you a shout out and a prize! If you're not sure, go ahead and Google it!

Please make sure to include your email address when you leave your comment so we can contact you to find out where to send your prize. (Don't worry! The email address won't show in the post, and we won't spam you! It's the only way we can let you know if you're a winner.)

Now, here are the rules:

  • The limit is two prizes per person.
  • If you win, we'll email you. You'll need to reply within one week with your full name and address to receive your prize. (Don't worry! We'll keep your information private!)
  • Allow 6 to 8 weeks for your prize to arrive (probably less).
  • Prizes returned as undeliverable will be forfeited.
