Romig Student Wins Big Wild Life™ Trivia Contest
Anchorage, Alaska – Nov. 16, 2010 –Charlie Lowell of Romig Middle School clinched the win at the 2010 Big Wild Life™ Trivia Contest, winning a Tastee Freeze ice cream party for his entire class.
The annual contest took place Tuesday at the William A. Egan Civic & Convention Center, and tested seventh graders from across the city on Anchorage’s geography, history and attractions. That is not the only learning fostered by the event, however. Students in the School Business Partnership class at Central Middle School do all the behind-the-scenes work, booking the Egan Center, planning the event, serving as timekeepers, and even donning the ACVB critter costumes.
The Anchorage Convention & Visitors Bureau’s (ACVB) mission is to attract and serve visitors to the Municipality of Anchorage as a Destination Marketing Organization (DMO). ACVB’s marketing functions are funded by one-third of the bed tax collected by lodging associations. One-third goes to the Municipality’s general fund, and one-third to service the bond debt and operations of the Anchorage Convention Centers. ACVB receives no state or federal funds. 2010 marks ACVB’s 35th year of bringing business to Anchorage. Explore www.Anchorage.net for more information.
