As a reminder, the Academic World Quest is a flagship program of the World Affairs Councils system, invented by the Charlotte Council. It is a team game testing competitors’ knowledge of a variety of subjects such as: international affairs, geography, history, culture and many more. It is also a unique opportunity for participants to meet and experience a diversity of people and cultures while challenging themselves in a friendly environment.
“Participating in The Academic World Quest greatly heightened my knowledge of world affairs. I find that even after the competition, I am still keeping up with current events and occurrences in both the domestic and international spheres. It was an overall great experience that opened up a lot of doors for me and made me aware of many related career and scholarship opportunities. I was also able to see the nation’s capital for the first time which, was absolutely amazing.”
