Oklahoma did not produced the most astronauts, go here for the correction information.
So sorry for the misinformation.
Thanks everyone for playing along. I'm definitely going to have another trivia contest. Hope you don't mind that the prizes will be something I've made. Mama's on a budget.
1. Can you name 3 famous singers from Oklahoma?

3. Name 4 Olympic Gold medalists from Oklahoma.
Everyone is right again. This is the short list:
Jim Thorpe, track and field
John Smith, wrestling
Kenny Monday, wrestling
Shannon Miller, gymnastics
Bart Conner, gymnastics
Danny Hodge, wrestling
Wayman Tisdale, basketball
Henry Iba, basketball coach
This is another very long list, so many great athletes. Check out the Oklahoma Sports Hall of Fame
4. Which U.S. President was born in Oklahoma?
Yes, this was a trick question. The answer is zero. PraireMaid said Ike came close. I checked it out Dwight D. Eisenhower was born in Denison, TX on October 14, 1890.
My sister did wonder if Carl Albert had to fill in for a short time. I'm surprised he didn't considering what was going on when he was Speaker. That would have been cool to have a president from Bugtussle, OK.
5. Which city in Oklahoma has the largest supply of oil in the world?
Yes, its Cushing, known as the "pipeline crossroads of the world".
6. What two films did Tom Cruise film in Oklahoma?
7. What are the names of the Five Indian Ballerinas?
Known as the Five Moons, they are:
Maria Tallchief, Osage, born in Fairfax
Marjorie Tallchief, Osage, born in Fairfax
Yvonne Chouteau, Shawnee, born in Vinita
Moscelyne Larkin, Peoria and Shawnee, born in Miami
Rosella Hightower, Choctow, born in Durwood
More about these wonderful ladies later. Each one has a great story.
8. Do you know the name of this building and where it is located?
This is the old Cochran Building in Hanna, OK
Anyways, thanks everyone for playing, all 3 of you. Since PrairieMaid answered first I decided to give her the jar of my homemade salsa, however, Mom Mayhem and Nadine were right after her so they get a jar of my homemade pepper jelly!!!
So, ladies email me your addresses and I'll get your prizes in the mail.
Have a great day.
