So you think you know something about energy, eh? Starting tomorrow you can test your knowledge during’s First 100 Days Contest, tying energy trivia questions to the first 100 days of the second Obama administration. There might be an iPad Mini in your future.

The API-sponsored contest will run through Tuesday, April 30. It will include 30 multiple-choice questions supplied by API, five per day (except for Sunday). Visitors to and subscribers to its  e-newsletters will see branded contest ads each day, and it also will be pushed out on social media.

Contestants can answer the daily questions for a chance to register and win an iPad Mini. You can play each day, and each day you play you increase your chances of winning. It’s a fun way to get into some of the facts underlying the major energy policy discussions going on in our country today.

So … what do you know about BTUs, hydraulic fracturing and energy capital expenditures? Look for the First 100 Days Contest and find out.
