(13 Sept., 2016) The International History Bee and Bowl is delighted to announce a new partnership with EIC Education that will serve as a launchpad for growth and development of our tournaments throughout China. EIC’s subsidiary of New Pathway, which helps students with test preparation, English language learning, and university admissions will take the lead in helping to organize and promote IHBB tournaments throughout China, beginning with our upcoming tournament on October 29 in Shanghai. Suopeng Gao, on behalf of EIC commented “We are excited about this opportunity to work with IHBB and to provide Chinese students with an opportunity to compete in a prestigious international competition.” IHBB looks forward to working with EIC to introduce hundreds of students throughout China to our competitions, including the launch of our first tournament in Shenzhen later in the 2016-17 school year. EIC and IHBB also are planning a joint week of outreach in China in October 2016 to further develop the partnership. In addition to Shanghai and Shenzhen, other current target cities for outreach include Beijing, Xiamen, Guangzhou, and Hong Kong. EIC and IHBB hope to build on this in the future to reach out to students in additional Chinese cities as well. IHBB is delighted to have the chance to collaborate with EIC, and we look forward to a fruitful partnership for years to come.
