What is Academic WorldQuest?

Teams of four students compete by answering a set of questions in six global categories. 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.

This year, the categories are:
  • Global Protests
  • Shifting Sands: The Arab Spring 10 Years On
  • International Labour Organization (ILO)
  • The U.S. Foreign Service in the 21st Century
  • Country in Focus: Uzbekistan
  • Exploring Peace in a World of Conflict
  • Fraying Alliances
  • Looking to a Post-Pandemic Economy

A study guide will be provided to teams upon registration.

The top-scoring high school team (grades 9-12) will win the opportunity to compete at the National Academic WorldQuest competition held on April 16th and 17th.

 

Registration

Teachers, advisors, or parents may submit this form to register a team for Academic WorldQuest. As an advisor or coach, you may register multiple teams, but students may only be on one team.

Because the 2021 event will be held virtually, the registration fee is waived and closes on February 28, 2021. You may submit this form to register for WorldQuest with an incomplete team, however, you must have four players by the competition date.
