————————-

We are delighted to announce that our 5th Canadian Championships will take place on Saturday, May 4, 2019, at Lisgar Collegiate Institute, in Ottawa. Students qualify for the International History Bee and Bowl Championships by finishing in the top half of students or teams in the Bee or the Bowl at any regional tournament in Canada. Students qualify for the International Geography Bee Canadian Championships by finishing in the top half of students in their age division on either the Alpha or Beta version of the IGB Championships Qualifying Exam, either at the site where they take it, or for all students taking the exam across Canada.
For further questions on the 2019 IHBB and IGB Canadian Championships, please email Mrs. Nolwenn Madden at nolwenn@iacompetitions.com. Thanks, and best of luck in qualifying!

Prizes
Students who win their age division at either the 2019 or 2020 IGB Canadian Championships receive a reduction of $200 USD in entry fees to the 2020 International Geography Bee World Championships. This is not cumulative over the two years, however, if a student wins in both years.

Students who win their age division in the History Bee either the 2019 or 2020 IHBB Canadian Championships receive a reduction of $200 USD in entry fees to the 2020 International History Olympiad. Students on a champion History Bowl team in any age division receive a reduction in $100 USD in entry fees. This is not cumulative over the two years, however, if a student wins in both years, nor can the Bee and Bowl discounts be combined (the maximum History Olympiad discount is thus $200).

However, if a student is competing in both the International History Olympiad and the 2020 International Geography Bee World Championships and has received a geography discount, this can be combined with a history discount on the combined price for both events. The maximum possible discount is thus $400 USD.
