Divisions: Varsity and Junior Varsity only
Competition Type
: Individual, Counts 1/3 towards the Individual Olympiad Championship for Varsity and Junior Varsity students
This is a required event for all competing Varsity and Junior Varsity students.

For the 2022 International History Olympiad, we are introducing a new event that will test students’ abilities to analyze historical documents, other primary sources, and secondary sources to answer research questions. This event will bear a vague resemblance to the Document Based Questions found on Advanced Placement Exams, but will consist of multiple exercises and have its own rules and evaluation criteria.

A much more comprehensive description of this event will be forthcoming in the next few months in advance of registration opening in August 2021.
