Kansas Trivia

In my box today, a photocopy of something from Kansas State Secretary, Ron Thornburgh. I have adapted it here.

  1. What is the state song?
  2. What does the state motto "ad astra per aspera" mean? Come on you Classical Homeschoolers!
  3. What Kansas Woman was first to to fly her plane across the Atlantic Ocean?
  4. How many Kansas have been the Republican Party candidate for President of the United States? How many have won?
  5. Which Emporia journalist won the Pulitzer Prize?

  1. Home on the Range, of course.
  2. To the stars through difficulty
  3. Amelia Earhart
  4. Three ran; Alf Landon 1936, Dwight D. Eisenhower 1952 & 1956, and Bob Dole 1996. Only Eisenhower won. Too bad, Dole would have been a good one.
  5. William Allen White

Let's see some quizzes on other states.
