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.

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.


For The Winning Team:

The winning team and coach will receive an expense-free trip to Washington D.C. to compete in the National Academic WorldQuest competition to be held on April  2018.  Details to come!
