We talked with the 2019 winners of the World Affairs Council’s Anne Smedinghoff Academic WorldQuest Challenge championship match about their experiences visiting international organizations in Washington and competing in the national title match. The team — Sarah Matthews, Gillian Sjoblom, Libby Riddle and Christine Li with their teacher/coach Philip Lovell — represented TNWAC this year and were back to back champs. The team (w/o Gillian) talked about the highlights of the Washington visit and their preparations for the competition — good tips for next year’s teams. They also discussed the importance to them of the competition being named in honor of Anne Smedinghoff, a U.S. Foreign Service Office killed in the line of duty in Afghanistan in 2013.
