Enter Quibblo Quiz Contest #24

We’re throwing back-to-back quiz contests at you, Quibblonians. The annual Teen Choice Awards will be broadcast on August 11. The ceremony celebrates the hottest teen icons in television, music, film, sports, fashion, comedy and the web.

For Quibblo’s Quiz Contest #24, create a fun quiz about ANY of the nominees in this year’s Teen Choice Awards (and there are a LOT of them). Scored and personality quizzes will be given extra credit.

Give it a descriptive title (not “Quibblo’s Contest,” “QC,” or similar), tag it with QC24, and share it with all your friends, both on and off Quibblo. Hurry, because on Tuesday, we’ll select three winners to showcase on the Quibblo home page. Quiz us now!

Deadline: 11:59 pm (EST), Monday, August 5, 2013. See this post for the rules and winner selection.

Give it an interesting title (don’t include “Quibblo’s Contest,” “QC,” or similar), and remember to:

  • Check spelling and grammar
  • Tag it with WC23

Please allow enough time to complete your writing. On July 30, we’ll select three winners to showcase on the Quibblo home page. Now, tell us what happens!

Enter Quibblo Writing Contest #22

There’s a lot of “prom” talk churning through the Quibblo community right now, which makes this writing topic quite appropriate:

You have been invited to a prom. (Woo hoo!) Write about the event but… write at least one chapter from the perspective of a popular attendee and at least one chapter from an outsider’s point of view. (The “outsider” may or may not be attending the prom.) Try to finish your story with a twist, one we don’t see coming.

(For help avoiding “Mary Sue” characters, take a look at this and this.)

Give it an interesting title (don’t include “Quibblo’s Contest,” “QC,” or similar), and remember to:

  • Check spelling and grammar
  • Tag it with WC22
  • Share it with all your friends, both on and off Quibblo

Please allow enough time to complete your writing. On July 16, we’ll select three winners to showcase on the Quibblo home page. Now, tell me about your prom!

Deadline: 11:59 pm (EST), Sunday, July 14, 2013.
