• Welcome to the Australia & New Zealand Division of The International History Bee & Bowl!

    The International History Bee and Bowl are two history quiz competitions which are held around the world. The Bee is for individual students; the Bowl is for teams. This website has all the details on our tournaments for students in Australia and New Zealand.

    For the 2017 school year, we are planning on running both the Bee and Bowl at 4-9 regional tournament sites throughout Australia and New Zealand, along with our inaugural Australia and New Zealand Championships! The top students and teams also qualify for the 2018 International History Olympiad in Berlin, Germany which we oversee as well.

    Please explore the site to learn more about how our tournaments work and how you and your school can get involved. If you have any questions, email our Executive Director, Mrs Nolwenn Madden at nolwenn@historybowl.com.

    Thanks for your interest in The International History Bee and Bowl. We hope to see you at a tournament soon!
