Academic WorldQuest 2021
Welcome to WACNH's
Sixth Annual Academic WorldQuest Competition.
This year, the World Affairs Council of New Hampshire is proud to be partnering with five of our fantastic sister Councils from across the Eastern U.S. for our most exciting Academic WorldQuest yet.
With the help and support of WorldBoston, the World Affairs Council of Maine, the Peoria Area World Affairs Council, the Tennessee World Affairs Council, and the Vermont Council on World Affairs, 2021 will see our first ever all-virtual AWQ High School competition featuring teams from eight different states. Interested teams will register through their respective state's Council and the top 3 teams from each state will earn the right to compete in the World Affairs Councils of America's Academic WorldQuest National Competition in April. In addition the competition's overall winners and runner-ups will receive great prizes for their efforts.
The competition will be hosted on Sunday, March 7th from 2 to 6pm EST, online utilizing the Wonder.me platform (similar to Zoom) for the event and MyQuiz.org for inputting answers.
