The International History Bee and Bowl is gearing up for its fourth year of history quiz tournaments in Asia! In 2013-2014, we expanded throughout Asia with tournaments from Dubai to Japan, and Sri Lanka to Beijing. For the 2014-15 season, Vietnam and Taiwan will see their first tournaments, and we’ll also continue visiting schools with an eye to adding more tournaments and countries in future years! We’re also debuting a second set of Regionals questions, so students and teams can now compete twice before, and have two chances to qualify for the Asian Championships, which will be held in Singapore in June 2015.
Additionally, we’re getting set for the inaugural 2015 International History Olympiad, which will be held at The College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia in the USA on 9-15 July, 2015! An optional trip for participants will then run from 15-23 July, visiting cities and universities of the Northeastern USA from Washington to Boston. Students in Asia who finished in the top half of either the Bee or the Bowl at any of our 2013-2014 tournaments have already qualified for the 2015 Olympiad; all students who qualify in the 2014-2015 school year will qualify for both the 2015 and 2016 Olympiads.
Please take the time to explore this site; it will be updated as the year goes along with information on our tournaments and results after they are held. There are also quite a few resources on the website that explain exactly how our tournaments work and how you and your school can best prepare for them. For any further questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us at any time.
Thank you for your interest in The International History Bee and Bowl’s Asian Division, and we look forward to seeing you at one of our tournaments soon!
