The International History Bee and Bowl is delighted to announce that its 2020 Berlin History Bee and Bowl will likely once again take place at the John F. Kennedy School in Berlin, Germany. This tournament would run on our Alpha set of questions, and would be open to all teams, students, and schools including those from outside of Germany, who have not yet played our Alpha set for the 2019-2020 academic year. As with all of our regional tournaments, no prior qualifying is required. During the lunch break, students would have the opportunity to take the Championships Qualifying Exam for the International Geography Bee as well.

Please note, a determination of the viability of this tournament and a potential date will be announced by October 1st, 2020. 

For further questions, please email Mr. Emilio Ergueta at

Thanks, and we hope you will be able to join us for our tournament!
