WorldQuest was created by the Council and has grown into a
nationwide international knowledge competition played by
councils around the country. This program is part of the WAC
Charlotte's growing international education initiatives in
the Charlotte area.
of competition and enthusiasm for world affairshas
made this program one of our most successful education
programs. Over 50 teams of 8 individuals and students
compete annually in the Joint WorldQuest / Academic
WorldQuest for the prestige of winning and received generous
raffle and door prizes donated by the community.
In addition to the competition, a silent auction is held
during the course of the competition to help raise funds in
support of the WACC’s education outreach in the Queen City.
This fast-paced game is played in 7 rounds of 10 questions (for WorldQuest participants) and 8 rounds of 10 questions (for Academic WorldQuest participant) each with typically 30-seconds for every question. Some questions may require additional time. Each team collaborates to answer the questions and submits their answer sheet at the end of each round.
AWQ and WQ teams will be judged separately. Medals and trophies are awarded to the first, second and third place teams for both WQ and AWQ winners. Top teams will also have their photos taken and receive special recognition.
