IHBB is back in the antipodes, with our 2016 Auckland History Bee and Bowl having been held on 3 September at Auckland International College! The tournament was marked with many competitive matches, with the Bowl titles being won by St. Peter’s College in the Varsity and Hillcrest High School in the JV, and the Bee champions being Tenwei Liu of Auckland Grammar School in the Varsity and Luka Hayward of St. Peter’s in the JV. We’ll be visiting schools throughout New Zealand and Tasmania as well this coming week, before turning to our remaining tournaments in Australia.
Next school year (2017), all of the regional events will run in the March-June period with our inaugural Australia & New Zealand Championships being held most likely in or near Melbourne in August or September. Keep watching this page for further updates, and if you’re interested in getting involved with the International History Bee and Bowl, please email our Executive Director, Mrs Nolwenn Madden, at
Thanks, and hope to see you at a tournament soon!
