HHH student/fellows teams participate in 2017 World Qwest International Trivia Competition

2017 WorldQuest International Trivia Competition

It was another close game at our 17th annual WorldQuest international trivia competition. However, at the end of the night, only one champion emerged and this year’s winning team was The Institute for Global Studies, who scored 36 out of a possible 44 points. Coming in at second place was Cargill’s CSD Team, and Team Bethune took home third place after battling it out with a tiebreaker question. Thanks again to event sponsors Horton Holding, Inc. and The Eagle and The Hawk, and partner University of Minnesota Global Programs & Strategy Alliance for helping make the evening a success!
