Beginning with the 2018-2019 academic year, International Academic Competitions will be back in charge of administering the Elementary and Middle School Divisions of the National History Bee and National History Bowl. Since 2012, while IAC had retained ownership of these competitions, they had been administered by ACE (Academic Competition Enterprises) via an operating agreement which has since been terminated. Henceforth, IAC will also be the exclusive administrator of the U.S. Academic Bee & Bowl, the US Geography Olympiad, and the International Geography Bee. Recovering direct administration of the National History Bee and Bowl will allow IAC to institute a number of improvements and additions and we look forward to implementing these throughout the academic year.

Read about some of these developments, including a new Elementary School Division, an expanded History Bowl regional tournaments for teams, and the expansions of IAC’s US Academic Bee and National Science Bee, which students can compete in too!
