Competition details:

Who: NH high school students interested in world affairs

What: A trivia-style team competition testing knowledge on global issues 

When: Sunday, March 14, 2021 | 10 AM - 2 PM

Where: TBD

Why:  Learn, feel challenged, have fun!

Competition format this year:

In Rounds 1-10, each team submits their answer using an electronic clicker system, concealing their answers to all except the computer.  In the Final Round, the top two teams will go head-to-head to compete for 1st and 2nd place, with the 1st placed team at the round's start going first.  They will be asked an open-ended question and have 30 seconds to answer.  A correct answer wins them a point.  An incorrect answer sends the question to the 2nd place team, who will have 15 seconds to answer, for a chance to "steal" the point.  Then the 2nd place team will get the next question.  The round will continue like this until one team gets to 5 points.


Due to COVID-19, prizes for 1st and 2nd place are TBD
