The Academic WorldQuest Information Session will allow teams and individual participants the opportunity to learn about Academic WorldQuest 2021 benefits, how to prepare and study for the competition, and a question and answer session. There will also be a practice trivia round to help students prepare for the virtual competition.

This is a great opportunity to invite a friend or three to learn how you can be involved to have bragging rights to represent the City of Houston in the National Academic WorldQuest competition.


Academic WorldQuest is an exciting game of international trivia for high school students, played in teams of four, with 4 rounds of seven questions. Answers are submitted by teams, not individuals. It’s a great way to test your knowledge of international issues. Anyone can participate free of charge and teams can be formed by schools, individuals or SWAC clubs!
