Note 1: The Bee and the Open Bee prices are per student because a competition named a “Bee” of any sort is always an individual student event.

Note 2: Teams paying by wire transfer must include an additional payment of 30 USD as stated to cover processing fees. All wire transfers must be paid in US Dollars, namely, the amount we receive must be the amount owed in US dollars, plus the transfer fee. If your bank charges additional fees, these must be taken into account in addition to this. One wire fee covers all the teams and students per transfer per school.

Note 3: We do not accept checks unless they are made out in US dollars.

Note 4: Please note that History Bowl and Academic Bowl teams of 2 students cost 2/3 of the price listed here, and “teams” of 1 student cost 1/3 of the prices listed here. Such teams must be registered as such; the discount otherwise does not apply. Schools interested in requesting such discounted entry fees must indicate this on their registration forms or email david@iacompetitions.com to request the discount.

Note 5: No one is ever turned away for lack of payment, but if full payment, including wire fees if applicable, is not received within 2 weeks of the tournament date, the late payment fee will apply.

Note 6: If you wish to pay for a tournament in a currency other than the ones listed on our website, that is allowed, but please contact david@iacompetitions.com to find out the equivalent price.

Note 7: The definition of a state school for our purposes is a school overseen by the government, and which does not charge any tuition fees to any students. “Semi-private” schools, such as private schools which are partially subsidized by the state but still charge tuition fees to students (even if there are a few students who may be attending on full scholarships) must pay the private school rate.

Note 8: Please note that it is required for a school to provide a reader for any competition in which it has any individual students compete. For individual events, 1 reader is required per 8 students or fraction thereof. 1 reader is required for every 2 bowl teams or fraction thereof). You may request a waiver (please do this by emailing david@iacompetitions.com) but whether it is granted depends on IAC’s ability to find replacement staff, and it should not be presumed. If one or two students from a school (that otherwise is not required to have a reader for the History Bowl) attend and compete in an individual competition, no reader is required.
History Bowl Teams of 3 or more students or teams of 2 students which are sponsored by schools (i.e. a coach or teacher from that school attends) who are granted a waiver must still pay a $100 fee per reader they are lacking for Saturday, and a $200 fee per reader they are lacking for both days. These funds are then used to hire outside staff. The same policy of needing to request a waiver and pay a $100 fee per missing reader also applies to schools competing in the Academic Bowl on Friday.

Note 9: Please note the following regarding our cancellation policy (updated for 2022 as shown here): 
– You can cancel your registration for free until May 15 by emailing david@iacompetitions.com minus a 50 euro processing fee for any fees that have been paid.
– Teams and students dropping between May 15 and May 24 owe 50% of their registration fees. Participants / schools are liable to pay these registration fees regardless of whether or not they have actually submitted payment, as by this point, we need to have hired and paid for staff, their travel, and the awards based on our original registration numbers.
– Teams and students dropping after May 24 owe 100% of their registration fees. Participants / schools are liable to pay these registration fees regardless of whether or not they have actually submitted payment, as by this point, we need to have hired and paid for staff, their travel, and the awards based on our original registration numbers.
