5. Great Decisions
6. Japan-U.S. Relations
7. Space Policy
8. World Trade Organization (WTO)

10. Current Events

About 4000 students all across the nation participate in local competitions hosted by World Affair Councils in hopes of being one of the 200 students to advance to the final competition at the nation’s capital of Washington, DC. “This was our first time at WorldQuest, so we were trying to figure out how exactly the competition went and what to know for future years,” said junior participant Jillian Hurley. The BCHS team (Nora Barth, Jillian Hurley, Aidan Kramer, Caroline Thompson and Grace Timpe) placed 10th place overall at the local competition at University of Indianapolis.
