Free Rice Trivia Challenge

Did you know you could help feed the world through trivia questions?

The Siloam Springs Public Library challenges all young adults to the ‘Free Rice Challenge’!

Go to www.FreeRice.com, create an account if you don’t have one, and look for our group, called “Siloam Springs Young Adult”. When you find that use code F7VQ9YQP to join and start answering questions!

The more questions you get right, the more rice you donate to those in need.

Let’s reach our goal of 500,00 grains of rice by the end of summer!

Post your progress on Insta and tag #SiloamFreeRiceChallenge and to our Young Adult Instagram page www.instagram.com/albusthehermitcrab/
