"It is rare that students are asked to look at a real world problem and come up with their own solution. The World Affairs Challenge helps students realize that we live in a global community." 
Chris Elnicki, Middle school Teacher

"After this year’s competition a few of us decided to keep speaking out in the world. We now participate in bulletin boards on the NY Times and other web sites. We’ve found that as long as one is well informed, people will listen." 
Sam B.Middle school student, WAC Participant

"I relish the opportunity to interact with the bright and talented young people who participate in the Challenge. It recharges my optimism and hopes for greater international harmony."
