What is Academic 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) will win the opportunity to compete at the National Academic WorldQuest competition in Washington D.C. held in April 2020, hotel and airfare covered by UCCD. 

Participation in Academic 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 individual studying at a high school grade level 9-12.
