The International History Bee and Bowl are two academic quiz competitions with a history focus (the Bee is for individual students, the Bowl is for teams) that are held throughout Asia each school year. Founded in 2010, IHBB organizes events now in over 25 countries around the world, including the annual Asian Championships and the biennial International History Olympiad. IHBB is administered by Mrs Nolwenn and Mr David Madden, a young married French-American couple, who oversee a staff of dozens of full and part time administrators, question writers, tournament directors, and other personnel.
All IHBB events are held in English and feature comprehensive questions on all aspects of history. We pride ourselves on running competitions that are well-designed, logistically smooth, fair to all participants, and intellectually stimulating. We firmly believe that academic competitions can help students develop confidence, deepen historical understanding, and lead to friendships formed at tournaments. University admissions officers also are often keenly interested in past participation and achievements in academic competitions.
