Royal D. Alworth, Jr. Institute for International Studies

WorldQuest 2019-2020

The Alworth Institute is hosting its 12th WorldQuest International Trivia contest on Wednesday, November 13, 2019 in the UMD Kirby Student Center Ballroom. WorldQuest is an educational quiz game that is played in teams of eight. Teams compete against one another on subjects with an international flavor: flags and capitals; geographical features and international borders; people and events in the news. There will be a few questions targeted around the featured country - Italy! The game is played over the course of an evening that includes dinner, snacks, and a slew of door prizes. First, second and third place teams, as well as the teams with the Best Team Spirit and Best Costumes are awarded special prizes. Last year, twenty-nine teams competed with members drawn from UMD students, staff and faculty, the University of Wisconsin-Superior, and the College of St. Scholastica, the UMD University for Seniors and the UMD Honors Program, and a number of community members.  This annual event brings out the competitive nature of the participants, and it is simply a lot of fun!

Register for a team today!
