Webster University and the World Affairs Council of St. Louis will host the 13th Annual Academic WorldQuest competition on Tuesday, Nov. 11. This is the only international knowledge competition held annually in St. Louis for students from all public and private high schools in this region.

Webster University is a title sponsor for WorldQuest, with the primary role in hosting the competition in Grant Gymnasium. From 5 – 6 p.m., there is a pizza and soda get-together for the competing students and their advisers. From 6 – 9 p.m., the competition takes place with a professional moderator at the helm.

The winning team will receive an all expenses paid trip to Washington, D.C. to represent St. Louis in a national competition involving over 50 cities in April 2015. Second and third place finishers, along with the team named “Rookie of the Year,” will receive cash awards to fund school projects. All winners receive personalized trophies and door prizes are given out throughout the evening so everyone has a chance to win.
