Age division *
For the 2020 International History Olympiad, we will offer three divisions: Varsity, Junior Varsity and Middle School. At the 2020 IHO, students have the option to select which age division they compete will compete in. Students may select one of two options: The birthdate divisions cut offs are: Varsity (born August 2003 or earlier), Junior Varsity (born September 2003-August 2005), Middle School (born September 2005-August 2007), Elementary School (born September 2007-December 2010). The grade-based division cut offs are: Varsity – Final 2 years of schooling per normal alignment (if a student is planning on skipping a year, this is not taken into account) in a student’s school in the 2019-2020 school year (Northern Hemisphere or academic year schools [i.e. July-October 2019 through May-August 2020]) or 2019 school year (South Asia, Southern Hemisphere, and calendar year schools). Junior Varsity – The 2 years of schooling prior to Varsity eligibility per the above criteria. Middle School – The 2 years of schooling prior to eligibility per the Junior Varsity criteria, and Elementary School is anything younger. In the vast majority of cases, a student’s age division would be the same by either the birthdate or grade-based criteria. By these criteria, any student in the USA, Canada, Australia, or New Zealand will also be able to play in the division that they were eligible to compete in at the most recent tournaments held in their countries. Note that if a student qualified in the middle school division in the 2018-2019 academic year but is now JV eligible (or qualified in Junior Varsity, but is now Varsity eligible or qualified for in Elementary, but is now Middle eligible), then they do NOT need to requalify for IGB Worlds in the 2019-2020 academic year, but they MUST compete only in the age division that they are eligible for. Thus unless a student is still birthdate eligible in the Middle School division, a student who competed in 8th grade in North America in 2018-2019, and who is in 9th grade in 2019-2020 must compete in the Junior Varsity division at IGB Worlds. If a student in such a case is birthdate eligible to still compete in the Middle School division, then they may do that if they choose, or they can compete in the Junior Varsity division instead.
Affiliation *
At the Olympiad, each student will have a specific affiliation (i.e. country or US State). You are eligible to compete for a country or US State if any of these methods apply to you: 1) you have citizenship of that country or in the process of becoming a citizen of a country (Overseas Citizenship of India counts for this) 2) you were born in that country or state 3) you reside in that country or state for the majority of the 2019-20 school year (August 2019-June 2020) 4) you attended a school (but not university) in that country or state at the time you qualified for the Olympiad. You can only select one affiliation. This can be adjusted later if needed until June 1, 2020. Affiliation requests may be subject to verification procedures at the discretion of Olympiad staff. For questions on affiliation, please email emilio@iacompetitions.com
Your answer
Do you want us to provide a bilingual dictionary for you? If so, for which language?
If English is not your mother tongue, we can provide you with a bilingual dictionary for all the non-quiz bowl events for $20 USD. It will be yours to keep at the end of the Olympiad.

Registration preference *
If you are interested in qualifying for the IGB World Championships but have not yet done so, or are unsure if you have qualified, please email david@iacompetitions.com to inquire further. Note that if you are competing in the International Geography Bee World Championships, you MUST also fill out an IGB Worlds registration on www.igbworlds.com as well as selecting the second option here.
How do you plan on paying? *
Fees can be paid in one of three ways for participants attending from the USA (and other locations that use the US dollar as their currency) and one of four ways for other participants. Specific payment instructions will be submitted via an invoice received upon registration. For Everyone 1. US dollar denominated check on a US bank account (no further fee is calculated). 2. With a credit card via Paypal (an additional 5% fee applies, as Paypal charges fees to IAC for processing credit cards). 3. Via a direct wire transfer (a flat $30 USD applies regardless of amount per transfer, as our bank charges IAC processing fees for this). For Those Outside the USA or Areas that Use the US Dollar 4. You can use Flywire, a service that lets you pay in your own currency, and then select a further payment method. Flywire will calculate the amount due in your currency and then you can pay via credit card, wire transfer, or mobile payment app (note that available payment options via Flywire may vary from country to country). Different fees may apply here per method selected, and a currency conversion rate also applies. However, for those outside the USA (Flywire can only be used to submit payments that are not being submitted in US dollars), this is likely a good option, and is very likely cheaper than a credit card payment through Paypal. For further information, please see www.flywire.com.
