Academic WorldQuest Registration Opens

Nov. 9, 2019

Area high school students interested in learning about the world and testing their knowledge against other like-minded students can do so at the annual Academic WorldQuest competition. Registration is now open to all students in Antrim, Benzie, Grand Traverse, Leelanau and Kalkaska counties. Teams consist of four students and an advisor, and participation is free. This is the seventh year the International Affairs Forum and Northwestern Michigan College have organized Academic World Quest. All participating students will have the chance to win door prizes plus enjoy a free lunch the day on Feb. 6, 2020 at NMC’s Hagerty Center from noon to 4pm. The winning team will travel to Washington, DC to compete at the national level in late April next year. 
 
To register, email juliedoyal@yahoo.com to indicate your school’s interest by Nov. 29. Teams will answer ten rounds of ten multiple-choice questions. Study materials are provided.
