The 16th Great Humboldt Trivia Challenge: Bright Minds & Big Hearts

a fundraiser for Humboldt Literacy Project

June 6, 2024 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM

At the Eureka Woman's Club 1531 J Street Eureka, CA 95501

It’s your chance to win sweet, sweet glory and be the envy of your know-it-all peers! The Sixteenth Great Humboldt Trivia Challenge is Humboldt County's premier battle of wits. It's the most fun you can have combating a serious problem. It's a Humboldt County tradition. And all funds raised directly support our programs in Adult Literacy, Family Literacy, and ESL. ​Leave your smart phone at home and create your own team of three. Teams that do not know it all can submit their funny-but-incorrect answers to the Humor Judge for special humor prizes.​Spectators can get in on the fun, too. If you think you know an answer, place your bid with the judges for a buck. Correct answers will be entered into our 50/50 raffle, and you might split the pot at the end of the evening!​​​​​

This year we will be serving a baked pasta dinner (Meat or Veg), Salad and Garlic bread. We will have desserts and beverages for purchase, a photo booth with a photographer, raffle prizes, prizes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places, and some all around silliness. Please contact our office at 707-445-3655 or for more information.

To purchase tickets online use your phone to scan the QR code, use Paypal or mail us a check!

Family Literacy Parties

We love to have fun here at HLP! Starting with our FREE Family Literacy Parties. These events are held periodically throughout the year at local library branches. We have been working hard to get these events to more remote library branches like Willow Creek, Hoopa, and Rio Dell. Family Literacy Parties consist of local entertainment; story telling, dance, music, puppetry, magic, and movement, often paired with crafts for the littles, and free books at the end provided by us. They are usually an hour long with the express purpose of encouraging family literacy through play and creativity. Keep an eye out on our social media, posters, and announcements for the next one near you!

Tutor Learner Appreciation Night:

Once a year we hold an appreciation night for our Tutors, Learners and their friends and families. This event is specifically designed to celebrate and highlight our programs' most important asset, YOU! We hold our event in the fall and celebrate by eating delicious food, gifts, raffles, presentations and games. This is our way of thanking you for being a part of our organization.


Humboldt Literacy Projects’ Book Club:

We are starting a book club in 2024 for tutors and learners. This will be a fun casual way to stay involved with all things reading and booklike. These will start being held via Zoom but we are exploring how this goes and will be developing it further as we get feedback. We will be announcing our first book and meeting in early 2024.
