Trivia for Cheaters

Who will take home the coveted cheater's cup?


You're Invited!

You’re invited to 826DC’s annual Trivia for Cheaters event! Join us for an evening of pub-style trivia with DC’s best and brightest. The twist? Teams may cheat to win—by donating to 826DC’s youth writing programs. This year, we’re thrilled to welcome TWO hosts—Kat Chow of Code Switch and Tanvi Misra of CQ Roll Call. Previous hosts have included NASA’s Hakeem Oluseyi, CNN’s Chris Cilizza, Politico’s Kenneth Vogel, The Undefeated’s Mike Wise, and Clinton Yates of ESPN/The Undefeated.
