Montgomery College to Host “Jeopardy!” Auditions on Saturday, April 4
Event Will Be Held at the Germantown Campus

Montgomery College is hosting auditions for the popular television game show “Jeopardy!” on Saturday, April 4 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. The event will take place at the College’s Germantown Campus in the High Technology and Science Center, 20200 Observation Drive, Germantown, Md.

“Jeopardy!” representatives will test the first 1,000 people interested in being contestants on the show. Tryouts are open to everyone over the age of 18 with a picture ID.

At the event, participants will have the opportunity to try their luck with a “just-for-fun” version of the game, which uses authentic signaling buttons and “Jeopardy!” categories. The “Jeopardy!” Clue Crew will be at the Germantown Campus to host brain games, answer questions, give out prizes and sign autographs.

In addition, Montgomery College will hold programs fair during the event to highlight some of the unique programs offered for the community. Representatives from a variety of College departments and programs, including the nursing program and Workforce Development and Continuing Education, will be on hand to talk and answer questions. Information will also be available on Montgomery College admissions, financial aid and other services.
