Are You Smarter than a KIPPster?

April 30 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Are you Smarter than a KIPPster?

Get your favorite jeans and college shirt ready!

KIPP Tulsa’s signature event begins with a casual reception of heavy hors d’oeuvres, a cash bar and a LIVE student performance followed by our ever popular game show!  Mirrored after “Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?”,  community leaders will face off against KIPP Tulsa students in the ultimate challenge.  Designed as a quiz bowl-style game, questions are taken directly from 5th-8th grade lessons, and the competition is certainly fierce! 

Everyone joins in on the fun, but only one team can WIN!  Our students are already hard at work, eager to defend their title as KIPPster Champions!

Date and Time: April 30, 2019 | 5:30pm – 8:00pm

Location: Hyatt Regency Tulsa, Downtown | 100 East 2nd Street
