2014 Academic WorldQuest Success

When we get feedback from our AWQ participants, it brings our months of hard work and preparation into perspective. Here are some quotes from a recent thank you card from Park High School:

Thank You, World Affairs Council! I learned so much at the last competition. The foreign student Q&A helped me to be exposed to the outside world!
~Karl M.

Thank you for hosting this event! I learned a lot and the guest speakers were fascinating. It exposed me to new information about the world and its problems that I was not aware of. Thanks again!
~ Maggie B.

Thank you for expanding my knowledge of the world!
~Andy V.

This year’s WorldQuest competition was very inspirational and lots of fun! The speakers were riveting and the competition was fierce. This was a great experience, and I’m grateful for the knowledge I gained.
~Elana B.

We love to hear how our programs impact Montana students, so keep the feedback coming!

Thank you to again to all of the students who participated in the 2014 Global Connections International Education day featuring the 10th Annual Academic WorldQuest Competition
