The 2022-2023 WorldQuest International Trivia Competition was held as a hybrid event on Thursday, February 16, 2023 at 7:00 pm.  

Participants played the game via Kahoot! either in person at UMD's Griggs Center or virtually through Kahoot. 

Forty-three teams (about 1/2 in-person and the other half virtually) with students, staff, and faculty from University of Minnesota Duluth, University of Wisconsin Superior, and the College of St. Scholastica, as well as community members, participated in the competition. The top three teams receive a donation from an anonymous donor to the charity/non-profit organization of their choice. The winning teams were:

First Place - TEAM CEASE! (Community member) (Playing for Citizens’ Climate Lobby - Duluth Two Harbors) (Also winner of the 2022 WorldQuest game.)

Second Place - THE COOL WIZARDS (UMD Students and friends) (Playing for the Myotisis Association)

Third Place - THE MIGHTY TEASPOONS (UMD Students) (Playing for UN Crisis Relief Ukraine Humanitarian Fund)
