Weekly news quiz week ending 1/17

January 17, 2014 

Each week we'll run a quiz testing your knowledge of the past week's events. The answers to these questions can be found in The News & Observer issues from last Sunday through today. Contestants with the top scores will have their names entered in a drawing to win an N&O umbrella.

No purchase is necessary to win a prize. Employees of The News & Observer Publishing Co. and McClatchy Interactive and their immediate families are not eligible to win prizes but may participate in the quiz. Prize winners will be selected by random drawing from all users who receive top scores by midnight on Tuesday each week. The winner's name may be posted on the site. Winner must pick up the prize from The News & Observer.

News & Observer is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
