    This challenge has two themes and topics to choose from. Any posts submitted that are not within these themes between February 22 and February 26, 2021, will ~not~ be considered this time around!

    Our themes are:

    🧠 TRIVIA QUIZZES Learn how to make one here, and then check out a few posts from other BuzzFeeders as inspiration. Two recent ones our editors loved were "Matching These Shoes To The Disney Princesses They Belong To Is Harder Than You Think" and this Clueless quiz.

    🤔 "CAN WE GUESS" QUIZZES, which are made in the personality quiz format. Here are a couple of examples, including this silly one we loved called "We Can Guess Your Mom's Name Based On The Pizza Toppings You Choose" and "Can We Guess The Vibe You Give Off Based On Your Dream Life?"

    You can also make "Can We Guess?" quizzes in the form of checklist quizzes for example, "Can We Guess How Old You Are Based On The Amount Of Pixar Movies You've Seen?" or any other type of quiz your heart desires — go ahead, get creative!

    Questions about whether or not your quiz will be within our themes? Reach out at communityhelp@buzzfeed.com! Just make sure you do so before 5pm EST on Friday, February 26, 2021, so someone can get back to you before the contest ends!

    ⭐️⭐️⭐️ Once your post is finished, you ~must~ drop it into the comments section on this page between Monday, February 22, through next Friday, February 26, 2021! ⭐️⭐️⭐️

    If you don't share your post(s) in the comments on this page during this time frame, it will unfortunately not be eligible for consideration. We will not be able to make exceptions to this rule, sorry!

    *Submitting a post for the challenge does not guarantee that it will be considered or promoted, and any submitted posts that are against our guidelines are subject to removal!

    **Please note, if your post or quiz is selected to get featured across BuzzFeed's network, our editors may make a few edits to it to reflect the BuzzFeed style and tone! This includes edits to some copy and images (for more on image FAQs, check out this helpful guide)!

    You have the option to add a "challenge submission" tag to your quiz before publishing it, but this is not required! The only required submission rule is to drop your link in the comments section below.

    This tag will make your post visible to our editing team quite quickly but is not required for consideration.
