    The International History Olympiad is a celebration of history attended by some of the best young history students from around the world, featuring numerous competitive and non-competitive events. Watch the video to your left to get a good sense as to what the Olympiad is like. The 3rd International History Olympiad will be held in Berlin, Germany from July 14-22, 2018. The competition will be based at the John F. Kennedy School, and students will stay at the nearby Berlin-Wannsee Youth Hostel, where we have reserved rooms. A draft schedule of events is available here. Students participating in the Olympiad who are qualified can also compete in the 2018 International Geography Bee World Championships, also being held in Berlin from July 11-17, 2018. The Olympiad is held every two years, therefore, the following Olympiad will be held in 2020. For further questions on all aspects of the Olympiad, contact nolwenn@historybowl.com.
