British Columbia History Bee and Bowl

The International History Bee and Bowl will be holding the 2018 British Columbia History Bee and Bowl in the January to March timeframe. This tournament will likely be held in or near Vancouver; final confirmation on the date and exact location will be forthcoming shortly. This tournament will run on our Beta Set of questions. It does not require prior qualifying, and is open to all teams and students (including those not from British Columbia) as long as they have not played the Beta Set of questions yet. During the lunch break of the tournament, the Championships Qualifying Exam for the International Geography Bee will also be offered.
For further questions, please email Mrs Nolwenn Madden at Thanks, and we hope that you and your team will be able to join us!
