MSN Search To Sponsor Mensa

MSN Search announced Monday that it would sponsor the U.S. branch of Mensa, a worldwide high I.Q. society, supporting several of the group’s events and adding the MSN search bar onto the society’s home page.

Among the events that MSN plans to sponsor are Mensa’s Colloquium 2005--where members get together to discuss and debate major issues facing society--and Mind Games, an event in which members test new board and card games and give an award to the top five entrants.

The 2005 Colloquium will deal with renewable energy sources, and will be held in Tucson, Ariz.

MSN will also feature questions from Mensa’s yearly CultureQuest trivia contests as part of rotating content on MSN.
