Calling all high-school teachers, parents, students…
Interested in providing a focus on International Affairs and having your students compete locally for prize money and a trip to Washington DC for a national competition?
The World Affairs Council of Monterey Bay will sponsor a countywide Academic World Quest (AWQ) competition during the 2023-24 academic year.
Each Monterey County high school is invited to send a team of four students to compete in the Monterey County AWQ competition on February 24, 2024.
Each school must have a teacher serving as coach to a team of four high school students. Each coach who brings a team of four to the local competition will receive a stipend of $325.
Students in the top three teams in Monterey County will receive the following awards:
- First place team members will receive $300 each and an all-expenses paid trip to Washington, DC to participate in the national AWQ competition in the spring of 2023. Their coach will also receive the trip and an additional $675.
- Second place team members will receive $200 each.
- Third place team members will receive $100 each.
