Obama Academy is known for many things, from our basketball teams to our musical, but something you may not know about is our academic Worldquest team. Worldquest is an annual competition sponsored by the World Affairs Council of Pittsburgh. This competition challenges contestants to answer questions about global topics such as geography, business, world health and current events.

The Worldquest team that represented Obama Academy at the competition at Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Hall on Feburary 8th consisted of Scott Moore, Caley Donovan, Max Okabayashi, and Joshua Scherrer, with Mr. Naveh as the faculty advisor. Obama placed tenth out of nearly fifty competing schools, with Pittsburgh Allderdice taking 1st, Chartiers Valley High School coming in 2nd and Shadyside coming n 3rd. Allderdice’s team will progress to the national competition in Washington D.C on April 27th.

When asked about how he thinks his team faired, faculty advisor Mr. Naveh replied simply, “I thought we stood toe to toe with the best schools in the region.”
