| November 8, 2012

Webster University and the World Affairs Council of St. Louis are co-sponsoring the 11th Annual High School WorldQuest competition on Tuesday, Nov. 13, at 6 p.m. in the Grant Gymnasium. With nearly 40 area high schools participating, this event will draw close to 160 students and 200 spectators to the home campus. The event is free and open to the public.

Academic WorldQuest is a flagship youth education program of the national network of World Affairs Councils. The competition tests teams of four students on their knowledge of international affairs, asking multiple choice questions from seven unique and engaging thematic categories. This year’s topics include the Middle East, current events, the Cuban Missile Crisis, China, World Geography, UN Millennium Goals: Environmental Sustainability, and Afghanistan and Pakistan.

Approximately 4,000 students across the country participate in competitions hosted by over 40 local World Affairs Councils across the U.S. Winning teams are invited to represent their high school, city and local councils at the national competition held in the spring each year in Washington, D.C.
