About The Event

HOW IS WORLDQUEST PLAYED?

WQ is played by teams of 4 to 8 people, with answers submitted by teams, not individuals. The game consists of 6 rounds of 10 questions that are read by an emcee and projected on a screen. Rounds are timed and answers tabulated at the end of each round.

WHAT TYPE OF QUESTIONS ARE ASKED?

The 2019 Maine competition categories include:

  • World Trade Organization
  • Global Refugee and Migration Crisis
  • North Korea
  • #WeAreNATO
  • Space Policy
  • Current Events (through end of 2018)

WHAT CAN WE WIN?

The top two teams win trophies… and serious bragging rights! The winning high school team (team of four students only) is eligible to compete in the Spring 2019 national Academic WorldQuest competition. Thanks to our generous donors, the World Affairs Council of Maine is pleased to provide a $4,000 travel stipend to the winning team!

The 2019 Academic WorldQuest National Competition will be held on Saturday, April 27th, in Washington D.C.

HOW DO WE JOIN THE FUN?

High school students can get in on the action by forming 4-person teams who may compete to go to national AWQ or up to 8-person teams who compete for fun and experience. Friends, teachers, and businesses can compete by forming teams of up to 8 people. Non-high school teams are not eligible to compete for the national AWQ. The first team from each high school is free thanks to corporate sponsorship.

Additional high school teams: $250

Corporate teams: $500

QUESTIONS AND STUDY GUIDE

The contest questions will be a mix of World Affairs Councils of America (WACA) questions and our own questions. A Study Guide is available from WACA. Some, but not all, questions will be drawn from the resources in the Study Guide.

Please note that the Study Guide was prepared by the World Affairs Councils of America, and our competition will include only 6 of the 10 categories covered in the Study Guide (for a total of 60 questions), unless a tie-breaker round is required. A tie-breaker round may draw questions from the other categories or outside the Study Guide.
