Academic WorldQuest is a game that tests competing teams’ knowledge of international affairs, geography, history and culture. Each spring, the winning teams from local competitions across the country gather in Washington, D.C., near the headquarters of the World Affairs Councils of America, for the national high school competition.

The game is unique to the World Affairs Councils system and has no direct competitor among K-12 knowledge-based competitions in the United States or abroad. It is a flagship program of the World Affairs Councils of America. Invented by the World Affairs Council of Charlotte, the game is now widely played at the adult and high school levels around the country.

Metro Atlanta Academic WorldQuest
Co-sponsored by Georgia State University and the World Affairs Councils of Atlanta, Metro Atlanta Academic WorldQuest is the local competition held annually to test metro high school students’ international knowledge and to determine the Metro Atlanta WorldQuest high school team that will represent the metro area at the national competition.
