International Academic Competitions is pleased to announce the 2023 Long Island History Bee and Bowl, taking place at Half Hallow Hills HS West in Dix Hills, NY on March 18, 2023! This tournament will run on our B Set of questions, and like all IAC Varsity and Junior Varsity events, is open to all students, regardless of what state they are from, as long as they have not yet played this set of questions in the 2022-2023 academic year.
To register, please fill out the form below. Preregistration closes on Monday, March 6th at 11:59 pm EST. For late registration, contact firstname.lastname@example.org for the late registration form. Late registration fees and policies can be found here. For further information, please email the Tournament Coordinator, Sara DelVillano at email@example.com. Thanks, and we look forward to welcoming you and your team to Dix Hills in February!
Exams: During the lunch break, we will offer the National Qualifying Exams for the US Geography Championships / International Geography Bee (one exam serves to qualify students for the National Championships of both competitions), the US History Bee, the National Political Science Bee, and the National Science Bee. All exams cost $10 each.
Note for middle/elementary students: Middle and elementary school teams are welcome to participate at this tournament in the History Bowl. If there are at least 3 middle/elementary school teams that take part, a separate middle school division of the bowl will be set up. Otherwise, middle/elementary school teams will be entered in the JV division.
In addition, there is an Elementary/Middle School Bee event running at the same location and time as the High School Event for students in those grade levels who would like to participate in Science, Geography, and/or History Bee. Students must pre-qualify for Bee events by taking qualifying exams at https://www.iac-exams.com/register-as-sponsor . Details about the EMS Regional Final can be found at https://usa.iacompetitions.com/event/2022-2023-eastern-new-york-regional-final/ and any questions about that event should go to firstname.lastname@example.org
During the History Bee rounds, middle school students are welcome to participate in the Junior Varsity Division of the History Bee, and if they qualify, would qualify for the Varsity/JV National Championships, not the Middle/Elementary National Championships. There is no separate division of the National History Bee at this tournament for middle/elementary school students; those students interested in competing in the National History Bee at their grade level should register for this at www.nationalhistorybee.com.
