T-Squared: Competitive QRANK Starts ... Now
The time to acclimate yourself to our daily news trivia quiz has come to an end. Starting today, everyone who plays QRANK: The Texas Tribune Edition competes for fabulous prizes. And I do mean fabulous.
When we launched QRANK: The Texas Tribune Edition a few weeks back, I explained that we were giving you time to get acclimated to the game and to translating your knowledge of Texas politics and policy into the highest possible score before we turned up the competitive heat. Well, time's up. Starting today, anyone who takes our daily news trivia quiz will vie for a monthly prize — the leaderboard listing the top finishers each day will have a new tab tracking the best of the best over a thirty-day (or thirty-one-day) period. At the end of each month, we'll hand off some terrific loot to the smart and lucky soul in first place. Then, at the end of the year, we'll have an enormous prize for our 2011 champ. A good incentive to play, yes? And to keep up with the latest happenings at the Capitol and beyond by reading the Trib each day.
Our February prize: dinner for 2 at Second Bar + Kitchen, the swanky new restaurant on the ground floor of the Austonian at the corner of 2nd and Congress in downtown Austin. Thanks to Second's partners, Jeff Trigger, David Bull, Jeff Rhein and Scott Walker, for their generosity and hospitality.

Quality journalism doesn't come free
Perhaps it goes without saying — but producing quality journalism isn't cheap. At a time when newsroom resources and revenue across the country are declining, The Texas Tribune remains committed to sustaining our mission: creating a more engaged and informed Texas with every story we cover, every event we convene and every newsletter we send. As a nonprofit newsroom, we rely on members to help keep our stories free and our events open to the public. Do you value our journalism? Show us with your support.Yes, I'll donate today
