DuPont Manual Places Sixth in National AWQ Competition

Congratulations to duPont Manual High School, who placed 6th in this year’s national Academic WorldQuest Compeition. The competition was held on April 28 in Washington, D.C., and featured over 250 students from nearly 50 high schools nationwide, making this no small achievement. On the team were Aditya Mehta, Agharnan Gandhi, Mark Raj, Jake Powell, and Pranav Senthivel. Manual previously placed 3rd in 2017 and 1st in the 2015 competition.

We would also like to thank D.D. Williamson, Inc. for partnering with us and helping send these students to Washington D.C. at no cost them. Thanks to DDW, we were able to provide airfare, lodging, and a per diem to be spent on meals and cultural activities. Without them such an enriching academic and cultural experience would not have been possible.

 

Congratulations to DuPont Manual High School!
