J. Kevin Shrum: “Jeopardy - Lucky or Learn-ed?”
Join us for a fun, informal, interactive, and conversational exploration of our own Kevin Shrum's Jeopardy! experience on the show as a contestant:
- Application and selection - How to become a contestant
- Preparing for a Jeopardy! appearance once selected
- Game day: what it's like in the Jeopardy! studio and participating in the game
- Game play and wagering strategies, especially Final Jeopardy! wagers
Time permitting, attendees will be able to role play with actual game scores and Final Jeopardy! clues to see how they might have done on previous programs.
Finally, attendees who watch Jeopardy! on March 21 will be able to see if the practice helped and if Kevin was actually able to put any of the strategies into action.
Don't miss this fun program on March 16th.
