The International History Bee and Bowl held its eighth annual European Championships in Paris on 24-26 May, 2019, with the International School of Paris as the host venue for all competitions aside from the History Bee of Versailles (which was played on questions on the history of France outside in the Versailles palace gardens!). Thanks to Ms. Genevieve McHoes of the International School of Paris for coordinating the hosting arrangements and to everyone who came and played or assisted with the tournament. Congratulations to our many champions and we look forward to seeing all teams and students back in 2019-2020 for IHBB’s ninth year! We’ll likely be adding a few additional regional tournaments, and we will be posting information on our 2020 European Championships in this spot as soon as the dates and venue are secured. We’re also looking forward to the 2020 International History Olympiad next summer as well! Have a great summer, and we’ll see you next competition year!
