The World Affairs Councils of America (WACA) offers the Academic WorldQuest, a world affairs education program for high school students. In Indiana, it is managed by the Indiana Council on World Affairs and is co-sponsored with the Indiana Council for the Social Studies.

For over 15 years ICWA has hosted the Indiana competition. Any Indiana high school (public, charter, private, home school* or combination of two schools*) can enter up to four teams. There is no need to register students at this time. *upon confirmation per ICWA & WACA
