World Wiz Pub Quiz

WorldWiz Pub Quiz is an annual trivia night fundraiser for the Alaska World Affairs Council and the Academic Student WorldQuest Competition featuring fun globally-themed trivia, drinks, and great times with friends! Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, WorldWiz will be held virtually for the first time ever!

This year’s event will be held on Friday, October 16 from 7:00-8:00pm AKDT. Come early and stay late for a virtual social hour before and after the event, 6:30-7:00pm & 8:00-8:30pm. Registration is open to all individuals, regardless of location! Gather a team and play together from a single device or compete against your friends to see who is the biggest world affairs nerd!
