Since 1991, middle school students from the Anchorage School District have come together to compete at the Egan Center for the Big Wild Life Trivia Contest. The event challenges students to do a deep dive about Anchorage through their Alaska Studies course. The questions and study guides are written by Visit Anchorage. The event is organized by students in the School Business Partnership class at Central Middle School.
