West Michigan World Trade Week
Programming from the World Affairs Council of Western Michigan
Looking for global trivia players
Tuesday, May 11, 2021
We usually end our programming season with our long-standing, team-based WorldQuest™ competition. It's a fast and fun trivia competition that tests global knowledge in a light-hearted way. While we can't meet in person this year, we hope you'll join us with your favorite food and beverages in hand.
6:00pm Event opens
6:10pm Registration and rules
6:30pm Game starts promptly
7:30pm Winners announced
Free to play*. All are welcome.
How to play:
We’ll host the contest in Zoom, and registered participants will receive a link to join the session. Before the game begins, we’ll get players set up with our polling software, Poll Everywhere. You will not need to download any apps, but you will need access to the internet (playable on mobile phone or computer). You'll need to register with Poll Everywhere before the competition starts (we’ll walk you through it before the game begins).
All are welcome to compete individually for prizes and bragging rights, but this year, if you’d also like to compete with a team, you can join one at the start of the game.
We’ll award prizes to individual competitors, winning teams, and the team with the most creative name.
*Instead of a registration cost, we encourage you to donate to these local organizations--who have partnered with us in the past. They're doing great work to help our community contineue to be resilient
You may also donate to the World Affairs Council at registration.
