old-world-map-copy2Divisions: Varsity, Junior Varsity, Middle School
Competition Type: Individual, 3 preliminary rounds of 30 (V & JV) or 25 (MS) tossup questions + finals

Note: For 2018, this event will also feature competitors from the 2018 International Geography Bee World Championships, as this is also an official event of that competition as well.

Many students who enjoy studying history also enjoy studying geography. This tournament lies at the intersection of these two disciplines, as players will be challenged on their knowledge of historical geography. This includes bygone political configurations, as well as the role that geography has played in determining the outcome of historic events. Medals won in this event will count towards the medals table of both the Olympiad and the IGB World Championships, even if students are not otherwise competing in both competitions.
