Parents, family members, family friends, and coaches are welcome to attend the 2023 International History Olympiad! Students competing in the Elementary and Middle School divisions are required to attend with a parent/guardian. Students in the Varsity and Junior Varsity divisions may choose to attend with a parent or guardian, but are not required to do so.

This year, IAC is requiring pre-registration in the Parent & Family Program. Registration for the Parent & Family Program includes the following:

  • Attendance at Opening Ceremonies and Welcome BBQ on July 23; Award Ceremonies throughout the week, and Closing Ceremonies on July 30
  • Participation in the Family Quiz on the evening of July 23
  • Participation in the Olympiad’s six multiple-choice history exams – see how you stack up against the students!
  • Participation in Olympiad field trips (additional fees apply – to be announced in spring 2023)

On a limited basis, parents or coaches whose mother tongue is English can also apply to be adjunct staff members (moderators for certain events). This can defray the costs of their student’s program fees depending on their level of involvement. Adjunct staff will need to have prior experience in assisting at IAC competitions, pass a background check, and have first aid certification. If you are interested in this option, please contact Arthur Ramsay (
