How it works

Played very similar to Jeopardy, teams from each school face off and answer questions from a game board with "interesting" self-care categories. Pharmacists can obtain CE credit while cheering on their favorite teams! Always a fun learning event. The Competition consists of two rounds, each with 5 categories and 5 questions per category for a total of 50 questions. Questions are worth a varying amount of points and the difficulty level of the question is designed to match with the increasing point values.

All questions have to do with over-the-counter medications and self-care treatments. After both rounds, there will be a Final Question. Teams will be able to wager any amount of their total accumulated points on the final question. In the event of a tie, another question will be provided.
