Global Trivia Team Competes at Academic World Quest

The Sun Valley Spartan Global Trivia team competed Wednesday, November 17 at the 28th annual Academic World Quest conducted through the World Affairs Council of Charlotte. This year's competition was held at the Westin Hotel in Uptown Charlotte for our Spartan team's second competition against the regions' best high schools.

AWQ is an international knowledge competition that brings together high school students from public and independent schools in Mecklenburg and surrounding counties to answer questions relating to international politics, current events, cross-cultural relations, geography, foreign policy and global trends.

This year's team members included: (from top left to right) Hayden Walton, Mario Espinoza, Christian Sangio, Andrew Thompson, Steven Danielson, Samuel Keoseyan, Victoria Scofield, and Salyna Ang. The categories that each team member chose to become "experts" on to collaboratively answer trivia questions throughout the evening together consisted of the following:

Round 1 – Great Decisions 2010

Round 2 – Flags of the World

Round 3 – Geography of the African Continent

Round 4 – Global Health

Round 5 – Current Events

Round 6 – Spotlight on India

Round 7 – Matching Faces & Locations

Round 8 – Global Potpourri


Speak to the members of the Sun Valley Spartan Global Trivia team around campus about their experience and consider joining us for our next competition.
