What is Academic WorldQuest (AWQ)? 

It's a fun and challenging global knowledge program for high school students and a flagship program of World Affairs Councils of America. 

We host a local competition each year for area high schools. During the half-day program, 4-student teams collaboratively answer questions divided into ten international categories. The winning team represents our region at a national competition in Washington D.C.

Congratulations to the high schools who placed at our local competition on March 5, 2016. 

First Place: Shawnee Mission South

Second Place: Rockhurst

Third Place: Truman

Shawnee Mission South will represent our region at the national event on April 22-23 in Washington, D.C.
