Students who receive a Silver Ticket will qualify for the Regional Finals, which are mainly in-person, buzzer-based events. There will be Regional Finals held all over the country (as well as online), between October and April. You can find the list of events at this link.
Three events are played at the Regional Finals: The National History Bee, The National Science Bee, and The International Geography Bee, and each event is $45. To participate in each event at the Regional Finals, students must be nominated by their teacher and enter the nomination code from their Silver Ticket.
Students can qualify for the National Championships in each event if they finish in the top 50% of students who played in their division. Students who are participating in the National History Bee, National Science Bee or International Geography Bee that finish in the top 25% of those who played in their divisions qualify for the International History Olympiad, the International Environmental Science Olympiad and the International Geography Championships, respectively (See Step Four).
