The International History Bee and Bowl is excited to announce the start of its 2019-2020 competition season! This is IHBB’s ninth year of organizing history quiz tournaments throughout Europe, and it promises to be our most memorable year yet. Our 2020 European Championships are already set for 5-7 June, 2020 at Swiss International School Basel, to be followed next July by the 2020 International History Olympiad and International Geography Bee World Championships, which are taking place on a Caribbean cruise! During the school year, 12-15 International History Bee and Bowl regional tournaments will take place, including our first-ever tournaments in Armenia, and possibly Scotland, so there will be many chances for everyone to compete.

During September and October, IHBB staff will be visiting schools throughout Europe to encourage further participation in our events. If you’d be interested in having us come to your school to learn more about our events, or even hold a practice round or two for your students or team, please email IHBB and its parent organization, International Academic Competitions, wish you and your team the best of luck at all your 2019-2020 academic year tournaments, and hope you have a great time competing!
