The Regional Quiz Tournaments provide an alternate way for students to qualify for the 2020 International Geography Bee Asian Championships in June and the 2020 International Geography Bee World Championships in July. Students can certainly still continue to qualify through the Championships Qualifying Exams. Additionally, the Regional Quiz Tournaments are held on the same format that we use at our Asian Championships and various events at the World Championships, so the tournaments, aside from being an exciting new way to compete on their own, provide great preparation for students planning on competing at the IGB Asian or World Championships.

Format
All IGB Regional Quiz Tournaments consist of 3 preliminary rounds of 30 questions in the Varsity and Junior Varsity Divisions (25 in the Middle School Division) and then 1 final round of 30 (or 25) questions for the top students. All students play in all three of the preliminary rounds; the number who make the final will vary from 3-10 based on turnout in each division.
Aside from the geographic focus, the rules are the same as the regional tournaments of the International History Bee. Please see the History Bee website if you are interested in competing in additional history-themed quiz competitions. A copy of the rules for the IGB Regional Quiz Tournaments is available here. For sample questions to practice with, please see the past questions used at our Asian Championships and Regional Quiz Tournaments.

Dates and Sites

Due to the coronavirus situation in Asia, we are currently postponing all our regional quiz tournaments until further notice.

For the 2019-2020 academic year, we are expecting to hold IGB Regional Quiz Tournaments in Shanghai, Hong Kong, Hanoi, and Singapore. It is possible that we may have IGB Regional Quiz Tournaments in Shenzhen, Tokyo, Seoul, Kuala Lumpur, and Manila as well.

If you are interested in holding an International Geography Bee Regional Quiz Tournament in your city, please contact suopeng@iacompetitions.com to inquire about details on hosting a tournament. Hosting is largely just a matter of providing the classrooms, and then a certain number of your students can play free of charge.
