Hello all! This here is a tricky nineteen question trivia quiz based on the lingo, mannerisms, slang, and local dialect that is used on a daily basis in Iowa. That's right! Iowa DOES have a unique culture that is distinctly Iowa. Whether it be what Iowans say, or how they say it, there is something different about living in this totally cornfed state. Iowa is a beautiful state, nestled in the heart of the Midwest. It shares a border with Nebraska, and is quite close to the Great Plains. Out of the fifty states of the U.S., Iowa is the 26th most extensive in terms of land area and the 30th most populous with a population of around three million. With that many people, it's no wonder that Iowa has developed its very own mannerisms and lingo. Seriously, each region and even each state has its own way of doing things. Terms like Casey's Pizza, RAGBRAI, Pork Queen, Hyvee, and pop might mean nothing to a Caifornian, but to an Iowan they mean a whole lot. Like the state's most delicious pizza, a cross-state bike ride extravaganza, a well-known grocery store, and a word all midwesterners use to talk about soda! Regional differences really do result in some interesting differences between states. Not all three million Iowa residents are going to take this quiz, and certainly not all of them could ace it. But odds are that if they've spent any amount of time in Iowa, then they're well equipped to pass this quiz. At these terms and lingo are apart of everyday life in Iowa. So Iowans, up for the challenge? Press start!
