International Academic Competitions (IAC) organizes competitions in 40+ countries, including the National Science Bee, National History Bee, and the US Division of the International Geography Bee. Each Bee has an Online Qualifying Exam, Regional Finals tournaments in the 2022-2023 academic year, and a National Championships which will next be held in Washington, DC and Arlington, VA in June 2023 that we expect over 2,000 students to attend.

The initial registration and the Online Regional Qualifying Exams (ORQEs) are free for students; parents of qualified students can register their students for Regionals and Nationals, which carry additional registration fees. You can offer any of the three ORQEs to as many students at your school as you would like, and it takes very little time.
