ODU, LOCAL TEAMS WIN AT WORLDQUEST EVENT

Old Dominion University faculty won the Hampton Roads Worldquest competition at the Chesapeake Convention Center on October 16 for the fifth consecutive year.

The ODU student team became runners-up in the College Student competition category. The Indian River High School Team coached by teacher and ODU alumna Eileen Mooring came in third in the high school category.

WorldQuest, a copyrighted offering of the World Affairs Councils of America, has a long history of success in cities throughout the United States. In more than 30 cities annually, teams from local high schools compete to test their knowledge of current affairs, world leaders, geography, recent history, flags and other subjects of global importance.

The winning student teams will represent Hampton Roads at the National WorldQuest competition in Washington D.C. in April 2005. Additionally, the winning team members will visit museums, monuments and hopefully the White House. Second- and third-place winners will receive prizes that may include cash or gift certificates.
