There is only one name on the EnergyQuest Trophy – Foster High School.
Foster competed against 23 other Houston area high schools and won EnergyQuest 2011, a fast-paced quiz game that tests students’ knowledge of the global energy industry. This is only the second year for the competition, hosted by the World Affairs Council of Houston, and Foster has earned the title both times.
This year’s competition was held November 9.
Students competed in four rounds – Sources and Security, Technology and Transportation, Economics and Geography and Energy in the News. There were 20 questions in each round.
This year’s questions included such diverse topics as Canadian oil sands, French nuclear power, coal, hydraulic fracturing, photovoltaics and who owns the North Pole.
The Foster team is made up of Jessica Clack, Josh Dietert, Robbie Dinger, Michael Duncan, Jade Moore, Elizabeth Nguyen, Stephanie Tsai, Diem Tran and Oriana Wong.
Janie Head is the team’s sponsor. The victory earned $500 for Foster High.
