International Academic Competitions is pleased to announce the inaugural All Asia, Australia, and New Zealand Regional Online Academic Bee and Bowl Competitions! Students and teams from around Asia will be competing online using Zoom and an Online Buzzer System.
In order to compete in the Academic Bee and Bowl, you must be 19 years or younger at the time of the competition. You must also be enrolled in a primary or secondary school at the time of your regional tournament (or have graduated within the past two months, and not yet have started university studies). Academic Bowl teams will be limited to four players. Teams of three, two, or one player are welcomed to compete.
Varsity: born in August 2004 or earlier
Junior Varsity: born between September 2004 and August 2006
Middle School: born in or after September 2006
Younger students can play on a Varsity or Junior Varsity Academic Bowl team, but ALL players on a younger team must fulfill that division’s age requirements. All players on the same team must currently attend the SAME SCHOOL. If players are homeschooled for the 2020-21 school year due to COVID-19, they can compete for the school they attended during the 2019-20 school year.
