Students head to Academic WorldQuest
A team from Kealakehe High School will compete in the 12th Annual Academic WorldQuest National Competition on Saturday at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C.
The contest tests high school students’ knowledge of international affairs, current events and foreign policy topics. The four Kealakehe High School students competing in Washington are among the 200 finalists from across the United States. The National Competition is hosted by the World Affairs Council of America.
The team will be represented by Dan Andrade, Sarah Pike, Hoyt Thomas and Aricia Argyris and is coached by Justin Brown. The Kealakehe Team earned their spot to represent the state of Hawaii by competing against 76 teams from 28 public and private schools on challenging international categories such as cybersecurity, current events, global health, and U.S. energy policy.
