Spartan Global Team Competes in Academic WorldQuest Competition
The Spartan Global Trivia Team competed against 24 area high schools Thursday, November 17, 2011, at the Westin Uptown Charlotte Hotel in the Academic WorldQuest Competition. WorldQuest was created by the World Affairs Council of Charlotte and has grown into a nationwide international knowledge competition played by councils around the country. Academic WorldQuest (AWQ) is the high school version of the international knowledge competition.
This fast-paced game is played in 8 rounds of 10 questions each with typically 30-seconds for every question. Some questions may require additional time. Each team collaborates to answer the questions and submits their answer sheet at the end of each round.
The Spartan Global Trivia Team this year achieved 14th place after many long hours of intense independent studying and after school quizzing each other as a team. We are very proud of their Academic Achievement.
If you would like to join the team next year, see Mr. Pitoniak in room 109.
