The audience chooses the winner of the Challenge and the winner is awarded the “Golden Brain.”

Other events in the week that highlight student and faculty achievement at MNU include Student and Faculty Research Exhibitions, and a Student Scholarship Showcase. The public is encouraged to attend Week of Scholarship and all events except President's Honors are free of charge.

The Week of Scholarship culminates with the President's Honors Gala, MNU's premier fundraising event to benefit student scholarships, April 8 at 6:30 p.m. in Cook Center.
