MommyMaestra's Hispanic Heritage History Quiz! {GIVEAWAY}


Okay, mi gente. It is that time of year again! Time for MommyMaestra's annual Hispanic Heritage History Quiz! How many of you are Latin history buffs?

The last two years, I've given away a set of BrainQuest's Hispanic America. So it's sort of una tradición around here.

THE GIVEAWAY

And once again, one MommyMaestra reader will win a set of BrainQuest's Hispanic America trivia cards. To enter, all you have to do is correctly answer 6 of the 12 (yes, I went up!) Brain Quest questions listed at the end of this post. I tried to pick ones that were a mix of easy and hard...(Mwuah-ha-ha!) AND ones that weren't part of last year's giveaway (Chihuahua, it's getting harder to do that!).

• For an additional entry, follow MommyMaestra on Facebook. Be sure to leave a separate comment letting me know that you did!

• Like last year, anyone able to answer all 12 questions earns the title "Supreme Trivia Master."

The deadline to enter is September 30th, at 11:59 pm EST. The winner will be chosen using Random.org and be notified via email. (Please be sure to provide a valid email address with your entry or some other way to contact you or your entry will be invalid.) The winner must have a valid United States mailing address.

By entering this giveaway, you agree to the Official Sweepstakes Rules. No purchase required. Void where prohibited.
¡Buena suerte!
