What is AWQ?

The World Affairs Councils of America’s flagship youth education program is a fun, fast-paced team competition for high school students. Academic WorldQuest tests players’ knowledge of current international politics, geography, global economics, history, and world cultures. Academic WorldQuest engages more than 4,000 high school students annually to test their knowledge of global issues and foreign policy in competitions across the country.
