CCWA’s Academic WorldQuest Competition
Academic WorldQuest is a national competition in which teams of high school students test their knowledge of international affairs, U.S. foreign policy, and current events. Teams compete over 10 rounds of questioning for the grand prize of representing Northern Ohio in the National Competition held in Washington, D.C. in April.
Our local Northern Ohio competition was held on Thursday, January 17, 2019. The Cleveland Council on World Affairs would like to congratulate and recognize the winners of this year’s Academic WorldQuest competition:
First Place Team: Hathaway Brown

The first place team advances to the National Academic WorldQuest competition to be held in Washington, DC from April 26-27, 2019.

The winning team will receive a stipend to defray the cost of hotel and travel expenses.
