About

Welcome to the International Academic Competitions! IAC is a network of numerous academic competitions, all of which have been founded since 2010. IAC’s staff administers and oversees events in over 25 separate countries, and is deeply committed to the growth and development of academic competition. Please explore our website to learn more about our competition opportunities for you and your school. If your school is located in Africa, Latin America, the Caribbean or the Pacific islands (outside New Zealand and US states and territories – for these please see the respective websites off the menu bar) and you would like further information on how your students can compete, please email our Executive Director, Mrs Nolwenn Madden at nolwenn@iacompetitions.com
Good luck with all of your competitions!

IAC Competition Opportunities

IAC currently oversees competitions in Asia, Australia and New Zealand, Canada, Europe, and the USA. However, if you are interested in competing in one of our competitions and live elsewhere, or if you have students interested in doing so, you have a number of ways to do so as outlined here:

IHBB

International History Bowl

The International History Bowl is a buzzer-based team history quiz competition. Teams consist of up to 6 students, up to 4 of whom play together at any given time. History Bowl tournaments require at least 4 teams (thus, realistically a minimum of 8 students, though more is certainly preferable). If you would like to hold an intramural History Bowl competition at your school, or if you would like to invite a nearby school or schools to do so, please email nolwenn@iacompetitions.com and we can provide you with quiz questions, explain the rules, and help facilitate the event. You may also wish to visit our Asian, Australia and New Zealand, Canadian, European, or USA websites to view sample questions and look for study guides, rules, and other resources.

IHBB

International History Bee 

The International History Bee is a buzzer-based history quiz competition for individual students. Bee competitions can be held with as few as 3-5 students, though certainly having more is preferable. If you would like to hold an intramural History Bee competition at your school, or if you would like to invite a nearby school or schools to do so, please email nolwenn@iacompetitions.com and we can provide you with quiz questions, explain the rules, and help facilitate the event. You may also wish to visit our Asian, Australia and New Zealand, Canadian, European, or USA websites to view sample questions and look for study guides, rules, and other resources.

IHO

International History Olympiad

The International History Olympiad is an 8-day long history extravaganza, held every two years – the next Olympiad will take place in Berlin, Germany on 14-22 July, 2018. The Olympiad consists of numerous buzzer-based and other competitions, sightseeing, and special events with students from around the world. Students in countries where IAC does not currently hold tournaments can qualify for the Olympiad by taking the International History Olympiad Qualifying Exam with a teacher or homeschool instructor proctoring it. If you have students interested in this opportunity, please contact nolwenn@iacompetitions.com for further details. At the Olympiad, students represent their country of citizenship or they can choose to represent the country where they attend school (if different).

IGB

International Geography Bee

The International Geography Bee is a worldwide geography quiz competition, consisting of the IGB Championships Qualifying Exam and the biennial IGB World Championships. The World Championships is multifaceted and takes place over 6 days. The next IGB World Championships will be held in Berlin, Germany from 11-17 July, 2018. Attending students who are qualified may also compete in the International History Olympiad; the two competitions are designed to allow for cross-participation.
