What Is WorldQuest?

Teams of four students compete by answering ten questions in six global categories. Our talented emcees read each question and four multiple choice options which are also projected by PowerPoint onto screens.  After each set of category questions, your answer sheets are collected by the scorekeepers, and then the emcees review the questions with the correct answers so you know how your team is doing in real time.

The questions test a student's knowledge of current affairs, world leaders, geography, recent history, flags, international organization, countries, regions, the world economy, culture, religion, and more. 

The top-scoring high school team (grades 9-12) could win a chance to qualify for the National Academic WorldQuest competition in Washington D.C. held in April 2019. The team with the best costume and the team with the best name will also win prizes, so there are many reasons to compete!

Participation in WorldQuest can also be used to fulfill requirements for the Young Diplomats of Utah, an advanced global leadership program for ambitious and motivated youth ages 14 - 20.

HOW DO I PARTICIPATE?
Get your school, class, or club friends together to form a team of four students and join the competition. A student is defined as any individuals studying at a high school grade 9-12.

2018 WorldQuest Update

UCCD would like to give a gracious thank you to everyone who supported WorldQuest this year!  It certainly was a night of fun and fierce competition with many teams representing their schools, social groups, and clubs. Some agreed and a few disagreed with the questions and answers. But it is safe to say fun and laughter was had by all.
