AMARILLO -- Dozens of teams and hundreds of participants in Big Idea Challenge will gather atop the Happy State Bank parking garage (located at 8th & Taylor) for the final leg of a month-long, puzzle-solving extravaganza. 

While the previous five weeks have allowed teams several days to solve clues and decipher puzzles, this live, final event will send teams to undisclosed destinations throughout downtown Amarillo in a final frenzy of activity from 6 to 9 pm.

Teams have been comprised of coworkers, colleagues, friends, and family members, including teams from Border States Electric, Ascension Academy, FirstBank Southwest, Happy State Bank, Education Credit Union, Chick-Fil-A on Georgia, Roasters Coffee & Tea Company, and more. The qualifying team that earns the most combined points from weekly puzzles, individual fundraising, and the Final Challenge will be awarded the events first-place Big Brain Cup.
