Panther Global Trivia Team Competes

The Panther Global Trivia Team competed against more than 17 area high schools on November 21 at the Hilton Charlotte Center City Hotel in the Academic WorldQuest Competition. WorldQuest was created by the World Affairs Council of Charlotte and has grown into a nationwide international knowledge competition played by world councils around the country. 

This fast-paced game is played in 8 rounds of 10 questions each round, with typically 30-seconds for each question. Each team collaborates to answer the questions and submits their answer sheet at the end of each round. The team was advised this year by Mr. Brian Pitoniak and Ms. Vicki Braswell. All students had a great time of fellowship, competing with some of the best schools in the region. William Alexander commented, “The Panther Global Trivia Club allowed everyone to Study about World topics and put the new knowledge to use in an enjoyable and competitive format.” Any student who is interested in joining the Global Trivia Team should talk to any member about their experience and consider joining them for their next competition.
