The International History Bee and Bowl is planning on holding its inaugural Australian and New Zealand Championships in August – October 2018. We will post more information on the Championships on this page when we have that available and a date and host confirmed. Students who finish in the top half in the History Bee at any prior regional tournament will qualify; teams qualify in the Bowl by finishing with a .500 winning percentage or better (either overall or solely against teams in their division) in preliminary rounds, or by winning a playoff game in the History Bowl. Host schools can bring an extra team in the History Bowl for each tournament they’ve hosted on top of those they qualify.

Australian and New Zealand students and teams who compete in a regional tournament and finish in the top half of their division for the Bee or the Bowl also qualify for the 2018 International History Olympiad (which does require qualifying along these lines). For further questions, please contact Nolwenn Madden at Thanks, and good luck!
