Please register your team(s) here. Thanks to a generous donor, WACNH has waived the registration fee for the 2021 competition.
This year, the World Affairs Council of New Hampshire is proud to be partnering with three of our fantastic sister Councils from across the East Coast for our most exciting Academic WorldQuest yet!
With the help and support of 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, with our competition's overall winners and runner-ups getting great prizes along the way.
The competition will be hosted on Sunday, March 7th from 2 to 5pm EST virtually utilizing the Wonder.me platform (similar to Zoom) for team coordinating/competition presenting and MyQuiz.org for question answering.
A Practice Day will be held on Sunday, February 7th at 2pm for interested and registered teams to better familiarize themselves with the virtual format. Be sure to email firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know if your team will be participating.
