• Welcome to the International History Bee & Bowl – Canadian Division!

    The International History Bee and Bowl are two history quiz competitions in English which are held around the world. The Bee is for individual students; the Bowl is for teams. This website has all the details on our tournaments for primary and secondary students in Canada.

    For the 2018-2019 school year, we anticipate running both the Bee and Bowl at 6-8 regional tournament sites throughout Canada. For the first time, we will run two separate regional question sets in Canada this school year, giving students and teams two chances to compete at the regional level. The top students and teams will also qualify for our annual Canadian Championships in the spring and the 2020 International History Olympiad.

    Please explore the site to learn more about how our tournaments work and how you and your school can get involved. If you have any questions, please email our Executive Director, Mrs Nolwenn Madden at nolwenn@iacompetitions.com.

    Thanks for your interest in The International History Bee & Bowl, and we hope to see you at a tournament soon!
