The International Brain Bee Championship Overview

The International Brain Bee involves three levels: (1) The Local (City) Chapter Competitions, (2) The National Championships, and (3) The World Championship. Any student who is 13 to 19 years of age is eligible.

The Local (City) Chapter Competitions in the USA are the first qualifying round. They are held annually at any time, but mostly during the winter. The Local (City) Chapter Competitions are sponsored by organizations like colleges, museums, neuroscience associations, pharmaceutical companies and others. The winner from each USA Local (City) Chapter Competition is invited to The USA National Championship usually held in the Spring.
