Hi! Sorry I haven’t been on for a while since I just got back from a competition in Beijing. To people who are interested in learning many different things and are interested in debate, writing, multiple choice quizzes where you can pick multiple choices, gigantic kahoots, and most especially making friends from different countries and having fun together as a global community, I totally recommend World Scholars Cup. In this competition, you will have to study up on 6 different subjects;
This year’s was:
Special Area; Unsolved Mysteries
Science; Enabling Technologies
Arts & Music; Louder Than Words
Literature; Voices From The Margins
Social Studies; On The Edge Of Society
History; Neglected Histories
And the main theme was A World on the Margins
So basically in this competition you will have to be in a team of 3 (if you dont have one, thats okay you can enter as a soloist and they’ll find a team for you)
And go through
Team Challenge (the hardest multiple choice quiz ever) (you can pick multiple choices)
Team Bowl (kahoot)
And after you pass our regional round (wherever you are, from Argentina to Zambia, they have it) to go to globals, the process starts all over again but of course, a liiiittle harder. BUT
Thats where the fun begins:
Scavenger Hunt (you will be put in teams of 11. No one in the group will be from the same country or school and you get a chance to make new friends.)
(I MADE A FRIEND FROM INDIA IM SO PROUD OF MYSELF lol)
Scholars Ball (THE BEST. You get to dance the night away after stressing through your academics. The DJ will blast out loud pop music and you can dance or get food or watch dance battles. Your choice)
Cultural Fair (Represent your country proudly in this fair and visit other booths too! My school usually puts up a dance in our booth bc we r extra
And dont forget the talent shows! You can boast your talent or untalents (some people got up onstage and just started chugging ketchup) onstage and have flashlights waving at you from the audience. I’ve been there. Its cool.
Seniors; 14 up
Just convince your teacher to join.
TRUST ME. Yu wont regret paying to get to the global rounds. It is an AWESOME experience.
