Celebrate the New Chicago Manual of Style—and Win One!

The 17th edition is finally here! Both the hardcover book and the redesigned online edition have arrived.

We’re celebrating with a little scavenger hunt. We’ll choose five winners from those with perfect scores to receive their choice of the book* or a year’s subscription to CMOS Online.

No subscription or registration is necessary to win, but email addresses are required in order for us to notify the winners. Answers to all the questions may be found in the free content at CMOS Online.

  1. Why do only the perfect scorers get a shot at a new CMOS? They’re smarter than everyone else to begin with and probably don’t need one.

    • Julie, you’re free to enter as many times as you like, so if you learned from the first try, put your new knowledge to work!

  2. Please pick me! I graduated in May and am going to Lise my CMOS access through school at the end of September, and would love a copy of the 17th edition since I didn’t have a chance to use it in school.

  3. “On “CMOS 17 Scavanger Hunt,” you scored”… Do I get bonus points for discovering a spelling error? 😀

  4. Hi! I want to take this quiz, but my log-in information isn’t working, even though I am logged in to CMoS Online. Do I have to register for the Shop Talk blog? If so, where can I do that? Thanks!
