International Academic Competitions is delighted to announce that the 2019 Kentucky Academic Bee and Bowl will be held at Winburn Middle School in Lexington, KY on Saturday, April 13. Like all of our competitions, this tournament is open to all students in 8th grade and younger who have not yet played at a full-day USABB tournament this academic year. If you are playing in an Academic Bee held in conjunction with a National History Bee and National Science Bee regional tournament, you are still welcome to attend. No prior qualification is needed, and out of state students are welcome as well. To register, please click here and follow the instructions. Be sure to read the registration rules, including the requirement to bring 1 reader for every 2 teams (i.e. 1 reader for 1 or 2 teams, 2 readers if registering 3 or 4 teams, etc.) or otherwise they must email firstname.lastname@example.org in advance of the registration deadline and pay a $60 penalty per missing reader.
During the lunch break the D Set Version of the National Qualifying Exam for the US Geography Olympiad & International Geography Bee will be offered (one exam is used for both competitions). The cost is $10; students may sign up on the spot, though advance registration is recommended using the USABB tournament registration form.
Thanks, and we hope you and your school will be able to compete this academic year!
