WACMB Academic World Quest Dinner

Honoring the Greenfield AWQ Team who competed at the World Affairs Council of America AWQ contest on April 20th in Washington D.C.

Tuesday, May 14th, 2024


The Greenfield AWQ student team arrived home on Sunday, April 21st from their whirlwind trip representing Monterey County in the National Academic World Quest. When asked what their favorite part was, all of them responded, “The tour of the Capitol!” Thank you Michael Ipson for organizing it.

Members of the Greenfield High School team and their coach are welcomed home by Linda Dilger. Others attending the welcome home group were Luke Dilger, Boyd Haight, and Doug Rogers.

We are so proud of these students who studied diligently to master topics on global issues including NATO: Defence in a Changing World, Sports and Diplomacy, Demographic Challenges in Africa, a Green Europe and many others. Please join us as we welcome a member of Representative Zoe Lofgren’s staff and Monterey County Supervisor, Chris Lopez who will help honor the team. Our evening program will also include a fun challenge for our members and guests to test their own knowledge of current global issues in our own WAC Quiz Competition.

These students are looking forward to sharing more about their trip at the May 14th WACMB dinner honoring them. Register online or send in the mail-in form by the registration deadline.
