The World Affairs Council created the “What in the World?” Weekly Quiz to inspire interest in current affairs for our members and guests, and especially for students.
Every Monday morning the quiz is posted on the Web site, on Facebook and distributed by email (to the “Quiz” sublist). Later in the week a followup is published to provide quiz answers and name the winners of the weekly quiz. At the end of the month a prize is given to one of the winners of the quizzes for the month.
The quiz also serves as a resource for students and teacher-coaches participating in Academic WorldQuest and other educational endeavors. It provides a tool to keep students engaged in global affairs awareness and serves as a guide and source for the AWQ competition current event topic area.
The questions on the quiz are drawn from the news reports shared on the @TNWAC Twitter feed marked by #TNWACquiz.
WORLD AFFAIRS COUNCILS, EDUCATORS AND OTHERS CAN SUBSCRIBE TO THE QUIZ FOR USE IN THEIR EDUCATION EFFORTS. CONTACT PAT@TNWAC.ORG FOR DETAILS.
