Regionals Event Registration

Tournaments are scheduled year round at the Middle and Elementary School & Varsity and Junior Varsity levels. Students may play at all tournaments for which they are age-eligible to compete for more opportunities to qualify for the National Championships (and for more fun!) as long as they have not yet played the question set that a tournament is running on.

2023-2024 Middle & Elementary School Tournaments

Note that Regional Finals are open to all students who have qualified via the Online Regional Qualifying Exam. You can compete at any site (including at sites out of your state) as long as you are qualified in that subject, and have not yet played that tournament’s designated set of questions for that subject.
History Bowl and Academic Bowl tournaments do not require prior qualifying and are open to all students. Students competing on History Bowl or Academic Bowl teams must all attend the same school or homeschool association. Note: Students may only play ONCE per question set, meaning that you may only play once in Red, White, and Blue question set tournaments.

  • Costs: $47 per subject (both in-person and online tournaments) Note: this fee must be paid each time you register to play

  • Processing Fee: Credit card payments will include a non-refundable 4% credit card processing fee.

  • Bulk Registration: If you are a school wishing to sign-up 10 or more students please reach out to ems-info@iacompetitions.com.

  • Hosting: Interested in hosting an event at your school this year? Please email ems-info@iacompetitions.com.

  • Registration Deadlines: Regional Finals registrations for the History Bee, Geography Bee, and Science Bee typically close on the 2nd Monday (12 days) before the tournament date at 11:59 pm EASTERN TIME. Once registration closes there will be a late registration (waitlist) process. For all tournaments, there is a $10 per bee registration surcharge (for a total of $57 per bee subject) for registering after the deadline. After the deadline has passed, we fix the field cap and lock registrations and are unable to guarantee a spot in the competition. If you wish to register late, please follow the instructions on the tournament’s registration page, and if more positions are available, a staff member will follow up with instructions and a link to register and make payment.
    History Bowl and Academic Bowl registrations typically have their first deadline on the 2nd Friday (8 days) before the tournament date at 11:59pm Eastern time. After this date, until 11:59pm on the Monday (5 days) before the tournament, teams may register for a slight surcharge. After the second deadline, tournament registration cannot be guaranteed, though email ems-info@iacompetitions.com to see if space is available. If so, there is a further surcharge.
