Desert Academy’s Brigid Baker, 17, center, celebrates a correct answer Thursday as she and her teammates, Alex Alsop, 17, left, Claire Hinkley, 17, right, and Alex Kellam, 17, participate in the Academic WorldQuest 2016.

Academic World Quest (AWQ) was held on March 8th, and it was a great success! We had 6 teams from 5 different high schools. The winners were: Las Cruces High School! They’ll be off to Washington DC for the national AWQ contest, held April 28-29, 2017. The Santa Fe Council on International Relations will cover all associated travel costs. Below are some pictures from a great day!
