• Welcome to the Asian Division of the International History Bee & Bowl!

    The History Bee and Bowl are two history quiz competitions in English which are held around the world. The Bee is for individual students; the Bowl is for teams. This website has all the details on our tournaments for primary and secondary students in Asia.

    For the 2014-2015 school year, we anticipate running both the Bee and Bowl at about 20-25 regional tournaments sites throughout Asia. We will use two separate sets of questions; schools can thus attend up to two regional competitions as long as the questions are different. The top students and teams will also qualify for our inaugural Asian Championships at the end of the school year; qualification can take place at any regional tournament. We will also be debuting the International History Olympiad in July 2015 in the USA for which students may also qualify at their regional tournaments.

    Please explore the site to learn more about how our tournaments work and how you and your school can get involved. If you have any questions, email our Executive Director, Mrs Nolwenn Madden at nolwenn@historybowl.com.

    Thanks for your interest in The International History Bee and Bowl, and we hope to see you at a tournament soon!
