Deakin alumni, can you solve these riddles? If you answer at least 10 out the 12 questions correctly matching our answers, you will go in to the prize draw to win one of ten $200 sustainability prize packs including a keep-cup, drink bottle and many other great sustainable products.

Each alumni member will have a unique web link to follow to participate which will be provided in the dKin Times alumni enewsletter sent out in August and an email to alumni sent out in September 2019. Ten Deakin alumni members will be drawn randomly from those who are eligible.

If you can't answer all of the questions yourself, you could ask your friends, family and colleagues for help.

Good luck!
