Students interested in international affairs are encouraged to participate in the World Quest Fall 2015 competition scheduled for Friday, Nov. 20 at 11 a.m. in Hale ‘Ākoakoa.
This informative and fun event is sponsored by the college’s International Education Committee and the Associated Students of the University of Hawai‘i – Windward Community College (ASUH-WCC).
World Quest Fall 2015 will be the final event celebrating International Education Week at the college.
It is similar to the television game show “Jeopardy,” where individual contestants respond to questions in various categories.
The World Quest format, however, is based on four-person teams working together to come up with correct responses.
This fall, the categories include: Current Events; Sustainability; Environment; Geography; World Religions; People in the News; Current History; and World Culture. Questions will have an Asian and Pacific emphasis.
Light refreshments will be provided by the ASUH-WCC prior to the event at 10:30 a.m.
The three teams with the highest point totals will be awarded prizes, also provided by ASUH-WCC.
The event is supported by the Pacific and Asian Affairs Council and WCC’s social sciences department.
Interested students and teams should obtain sign up sheets at the ASUH-WCC office in Hale ‘Ākoakoa 203 or from various faculty members.
Participants must be enrolled at WCC.
For more information about participating in this year’s event, contact Tom Doi at 235-7460 or stop by Hale ‘Ākoakoa 207.
