World Wiz Pub Quiz


Join us on October 15, 2019!

World Wiz 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, beer, raffle and team prizes, a raffle auction, and great times with friends! The Pub Quiz featured six rounds of globally themed trivia on topics such as current events, “Ancient 20th Century Technology”, global landmarks, “Are you Smarter than a High Schooler” and more.


You are invited to support educational opportunities for Alaskans to engage with world affairs by becoming a sponsor of our 8th Annual World Wiz Pub Quiz, held on Tuesday October 15th at 49th State Brewing Co. This unique fundraising event features six rounds of globally themed trivia questions. In the past, this event has successfully sold out to crowds of over 150 internationally savvy people. Last year the World Wiz Pub Quiz raised $10,000, which directly supported students in our local community through Alaska World Council’s student programming and events such as World Quest and Speed Mentoring.
