[For information on this year's WQ, follow the link off our homepage once it's available] WorldQuest is an annual event put on nationwide by World Affairs Councils from all over America. The event is a quiz game played by teams, featuring rounds of questions about geography and world affairs. It's like 'Jeopardy!' meets 'Where in the World is Carmen San Diego' but with decidedly fewer red trench coats. The winning team earns honor and glory, as well as a place on the perpetual trophy. Juneau's WorldQuest is custom-written by our illustrious and hilarious quiz-master (who also does the website).
During the contest, an international buffet is served, featuring delectables from all over the world, and there is a no-host bar. Being a fundraiser, there is also a silent auction, with items donated by businesses, artists and individuals from all over Southeast, as well as a dessert auction with treats created by local culinary enthusiasts.
