history bee and bowl

Students from BISP and HeadStart participated in the History Bee and Bowl Quiz competition on Saturday 24 February by winning the Middle School, Junior Varsity and Varsity categories.

History Bee and Bowl is an international competition played by about 10,000 students around the world. The Bee is for individual students; the Bowl is for teams – BISP students participated in both categories. There are about 30 regional tournaments in Asia alone, but tournaments are also organised in the USA and Europe. Winners can participate in the International History Olympiad in Berlin in July.

This was the second year BISP has organised History Bee and Bowl tournament. Students who won individual Bee competitions were in Albert Tantivit (Gold), Daniel (Silver), Carlos (Bronze) (Varsity Category) and Max (Gold), Bhuvan (Silver) and Marina (Bronze) (Junior Varsity category). In addition Albert, Justin and Elena completed the International Geography Bee. Congratulations and well done! The next regional is in JW Marriott in June!

Thank you to the organising teachers from BISP and Headstart, as well as to the international History Bee and Bowl representatives David and Nolwenn.
