For the Strength of Youth Jeopardy Game

This is a game I found in some old files I have for a Jeopardy game for the youth. The game is based on the content of the For the Strength of Youth booklet that each of the youth should have in their possession. My notes indicate that this idea came from the Anderson, CA stake. I think it is fabulous and I hope you enjoy using it with the youth in your ward. I have had to change the wording or remove some of the answers due to family internet filters. If you cannot find or figure out the answers to these questions in the last category, please feel free to email me and I will be happy to get those answers to you.

From the Stake notes:
You may or may not allow players to use the For the Strength of Youth booklets. If you do allow it, you will want to keep the game going at a pretty fast pace. The answers need to be given quickly...no more than 10 seconds for look ups. Other than that, it is played just like the TV version. We did not have any Daily Doubles...which would have made the game much more interesting. Naturally, the kids all go for the big point value questions first. We had three teams, and after each question the spokesperson for each team rotated to the end of the line. You can use bells, or buzzers, even pots and pans to determine which team gets to answer. Just make sure they are not too similar, so that a judge can easily say which team rang in first. We had each answer written on cards large enough for all to read it. The host turns over the card and reads it aloud, but the kids can ring in even before he’s finished reading it if they want to. Have fun!...we sure did. There are six categories, with five questions in each:

Example: Miscellaneous for 100
Host says: “The answer is--The appropriate age to begin dating.”
Player says: “What is 16?”
