Winners of the World Affairs Council of Greater Reading's Academic World Quest competition announced

Mar. 17—Students from six Berks County school districts recently competed in the World Affairs Council or Greater Reading's Academic World Quest competition.

Founded in 2003, Academic World Quest is a team game testing high school students' knowledge of international affairs. Four-person teams compete by answering questions divided into 10 thematic categories.

The categories reflect several of the most critical global and US foreign policy issues.

This year's competition was held Tuesday at Kutztown University. A total of 11 teams made up of students in grades nine through 12 from six school districts took part.

The districts to send teams to the contest were Wilson, Antietam, Conrad Weiser, Exeter, Gov. Mifflin and Muhlenberg.

The winner of the contest was the Gov. Mifflin Gold Team. The team will move on to a national competition next month.

The members of the wining team are Brady Detwiler, Kyle Wodehouse, James Gossert and Josh Wert. They are advised by Michael Kurtz.

Finishing second was the Gov. Mifflin Blue Team, while the Exeter Blue Team came in third.
