Academic WorldQuest Competition

Academic WorldQuest Competition

The World Affairs Council of Harrisburg each year sponsors the annual Academic WorldQuest competition, a team game testing competitors’ knowledge of world affairs, geography, history, culture, countries, current events, and more.

What makes a team?

A team consists of 4 high school students.  Fees for teams:

One team: $30.00

Two teams: $50.00

Three teams: $60.00

How the competition works:

There will be 10 rounds. Each round will have 10 multiple choice questions. A prominent moderator will present these questions by PowerPoint. Teams then confer to reach a single answer. Each round is thematically different from the other rounds.
