Global Trivia Team Competes in Charlotte

The Spartan Global Trivia Team competed against more than 25 area high schools Wednesday, November 6, 2013, 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 round, 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 16th 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.

Team Members:

Michael Garrett
Christian Sangio
