The Piedmont Panthers Global Trivia Team competed against area high schools on Wednesday, November 9th at the Hilton Charlotte Center City Hotel in the Academic World Quest Competition. World Quest was created by the World Affairs Council of Charlotte and has grown into a nationwide international knowledge competition played by councils around the country.
This fast-paced game is played in 7 rounds of 10 questions each round, with 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 is advised by Mr. Brian Pitoniak and all the students had a great time of fellowship, competing with some of the best schools in the region.
The following students competed in the World Quest Competition:
1. World Flags: Chase Altman
