Meet the Princeton High School team who will play against the local professionals in a game of global wit!
The Greater Cincinnati World Affairs Council (GCWAC) hosted the regional Academic World Quest on Saturday January 18th from 9am-1pm at the Cincinnati Museum Center. 11 teams from 6 schools competed in this local competition for a chance to represent the region in the national Academic WorldQuest in Washington D.C. and play in the the GCWAC's first annual global education fundraiser, ONE Mind - ONE World - ONE Night, against local Cincinnati professionals in a similarly modeled global trivia game. The schools that were represented in the regional competition were McNicholas High School, St. Henry District High School, Wyoming High School, Winton Woods Academy of Global Studies, Indian Hill High School, and Princeton High School. The teams were given 10 topics to learn about and were asked 10 questions per topic. Answering 84 out of 100 questions correctly, the team, Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch, from Princeton High School came in 1st place and the GCWAC will be sending them to represent the greater Cincinnati region in Washington D.C.
In addition, Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch will compete against local professionals and play to win at ONE Mind - ONE World - ONE Night. We will find out if our local professionals are smarter than high schoolers on February 8th, 2014!
