We look forward to seeing you all back for next year's competition and supporting you as a resource for world affairs. We are really excited about your generation as future leaders of global affairs!

Your generous contribution will help us to send the Global Trojans to Washington D.C. to compete in the Carlos and Malú Alvarez Academic WorldQuest National Competition! Your support will help inspire a new generation of international affairs thought leaders.
Academic WorldQuest is a nation-wide competition to test high school students’ knowledge of current international politics, geography, global economics, history, and world cultures. Its purpose is to prepare the next generation of leaders, scholars, and decision-makers to thrive in a rapidly changing world. It strives to renew enthusiasm for global studies, closing the gap between American students and many of their counterparts abroad when it comes to knowledge and understanding of world history, geography, and international events.
As such, each year over 50 World Affairs Councils across the country hold local Academic WorldQuest competitions for high school students in their communities. The local competition in Miami-Dade and Broward will take place in ealy April 2022, with the winning team then invited on an all-expense-paid trip to Washington, DC in late April 2022 to represent their high school and compete in the Carlos and Malú Alvarez Academic WorldQuest 2022 National Competition at the United States Peace Institute!
The Academic WorldQuest Championship weekend includes the competition, unique programming planned to enhance the global education experience, and an opportunity to meet and engage with approximately 250 like-minded peers from around the United States.
