International Academic Competitions is pleased to announce the 2023 Lehigh Valley Winter History Bee and Exams, taking place at Muhlenberg College in Allentown, PA on December 16th, 2023!  This tournament will run on our C Set of questions, and like all IAC Varsity and Junior Varsity events, is open to all students, regardless of what state they are from, as long as they have not yet played this set of questions in the 2023-2024 academic year. 

To register, please fill out the form below.   Late registration fees and policies can be found hereFor further information, please email the Tournament Coordinator, Sara DelVillano at sara@iacompetitions.com . Thanks, and we look forward to welcoming you to Allentown in December!

Exams: During the lunch break, we will offer the National Qualifying Exams for the US Geography Championships / National Geography Bee (one exam serves to qualify students for the National Championships of both competitions), the US History Bee, the National Political Science Bee, and the National Science Bee. All exams cost $15 each. Students can also qualify for the International Geography Championships (Vienna, Austria – July 13-20, 2024) and the International Environmental Science Olympiad (Puerto Rico – Dec. 27-31, 2024) through the Geography and Science National Qualifying Exams.

Note for middle/elementary students: This event is held concurrently with the Elementary/Middle School Regional Final at the same location. 

If they choose, during the V/JV History Bee rounds, middle school students are welcome to participate in the Junior Varsity Division of the History Bee, and if they qualify, would qualify for the Varsity/JV National Championships, not the Elementary/Middle School National Championships.   If a Middle/Elementary student wants to participate in the History Bee portion of the Varsity/JV Regional, only the JV History Bee will be available; those students interested in competing against other middle school students should participate in the EMS Regional Final at the same location instead or at a different event.

Schedule:  The schedule as listed below is considered tentative, and therefore may still be subject to slight changes based on turnout until registration closes, at which point it will be confirmed. Students and teams looking for further guidance on the schedule should contact the Tournament Coordinator at sara@iacompetitions.com
