What is the Big Idea Challenge?

It's a five-week puzzle adventure that pits teams of smart people against each other as they solve challenging puzzles across Amarillo, all while raising money for Panhandle PBS. How does it work? Download this handy illustrated guide.

Teams of 6 to 10 compete for bragging rights as they strive to earn the coveted “Big Brains” award. Team members earn points by raising money through social media, e-mail, and by asking friends and family to help out. They also get points for solving puzzles correctly. Teams who earn the required number of points get to participate in the FINAL CHALLENGE live the evening of May 1, 2015. Official rules.

Why teams?
Each week during the Big Idea Challenge, teams will receive a different puzzle to solve. Even the smartest puzzle solvers need clues that they collect by interacting with our sponsors throughout Amarillo.
