Each year, World Affairs Councils around the United States host Academic WorldQuest competitions for high school students. The World Affairs Council of Dallas/Fort Worth hosts nearly 80 North Texas area teams, which participate each February. Teams of four (4) study for a chance to compete on the national level in Washington D.C. against other regional winners. Each JWAC may enter up to three (3).

The competition consists of 100 multiple-choice questions, including 10 sections of 10 questions. Participants prepare for the competition by studying an online study guide. The World Affairs Councils of America decides the 10 topics based on the most relevant global issues of that year. In the case of a tie, the competition can go into a tiebreaker round of 10 multiple-choice questions and then a sudden death round of five questions that require write-in answers.

Teachers can register up to three teams by emailing jbowden@dfwworld.org
