What Are You a Nerd For?

Everyone’s a nerd for something, but at Prairie Public we’re Nerds for everything!

First, sign up to Be a PBS Nerd to share your inner nerd. Then, create or join a PBS Nerd Challenge or PBS Nerd Event that speaks to who you are, and what makes you passionate—whatever that may be! ​

Whether it’s cycling a century, hosting a Hamilton karaoke party, or binge-watching the Cosmos, the nerd world is your oyster.

Sign up now to Be a PBS Nerd and create your own PBS Nerd Challenge or host your own PBS Nerd Event!

What are PBS Nerd Challenges and PBS Nerd Events?

A PBS Nerd Challenge is a personal challenge you create to invite friends and family to take on, such as dressing up for a day as a character from your favorite PBS show.

A PBS Nerd Event is an in-person event you host and invite others to attend, such as a watch party for your favorite show.

Not sure what to do? Get ideas for your PBS Nerd Challenge and PBS Nerd Events by browsing the Calendar to see what others are doing!

Why Participate?

By participating, you'll help us raise money and awareness in support of the wide variety of interests that PBS and our local station caters to through our exceptional programming and resources, and also promote two hallmarks of public media—diversity and inclusion.

You'll also have the chance to win great prizes, including PBS Nerd swag. Earn points for everything you do! Check out the Leader Boards for more details.
