The International History Bee and Bowl is delighted to announce that its 2020 Black Forest History Bee and Bowl will likely take place at the Black Forest Academy in Kandern, Germany.  This tournament would run on our Beta set of questions, and is open to all teams, students, and schools including those from outside the United Kingdom, who have not yet played our Beta 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!
