WorldQuest: A Global Pop Trivia Challenge
The Weeks of May 18 - June 15
The World Affairs Councils of America, in conjunction with the World Affairs Council of New Hampshire and other Councils across the country, will kick-off WorldQuest: A Global Pop Trivia Challenge - a five-week long, nationwide trivia competition beginning the week of May 18 and ending the week of June 15.

Each participating local Council will host a local Global Pop Trivia game once a week with questions from the national trivia bank developed by WAC New Hampshire and partnering Councils. All Councils will use the same trivia questions each week. After the 4-week regular season ends, the two top persons or teams with the most points over that time period will proceed to the online National Competition to compete against the champions of each participating Council from across the country during the week of June 15 . One lucky winner will get a free ticket to the WACA 2020 National Conference in Washington, DC. ( Teams, please note: there will be only one free ticket.)

All Councils are welcomed and encouraged to host local competitions, and all you have to do is contribute 20 questions to the national Global Pop Trivia question bank. A new set of 40 questions will be released every week from the question bank for participating Councils all around the country. Councils will need a virtual video platform to host the local competition and a (free) account with MyQuiz.
