Team UMN China Center took the Team Spirit Award at Global Minnesota's 2017 WorldQuest International Trivia competition, held on December 1, 2017, at McNamara Alumni Center. Armed with festive attire representing five of China's ethnic minority groups, the China Center team cheered loudly and made quite the impression on the judges. In 2017-18 Global Minnesota celebrates a "Year of China," and questions about China were peppered amongst the challenging trivia questions.
