August 28th, 2009 in Donation, Auks No comments

Earlier this month the American Ornithologists' Union had their annual meeting in Philadelphia. During the event, the 4th annual student quiz bowl took place, and Birdorable was proud to donate three of our Great Auk tote bags to be used as prizes. The Great Auk is part of the logo of the AOU and their quarterly journal is The Auk. According to AOU Student Affairs Committee member Nicholas Block, "The quiz bowl went really well overall! We had hundreds of people in attendance, and a great time was had by all. The team of students from Auburn University, named A Flock of Steven Seagals, won the title." Here are two of the winning team members showing off their Birdorable Great Auk totes.

Thanks for the update, Nick! It sounds like the quiz bowl was a lot of fun!
