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
