About International Academic Competitions
International Academic Competitions is a buzzer-based competition program founded by 19-day Jeopardy champion David Madden in 2010, as a place for students to compete in single-subject disciplines such as history, geography, and science. Madden’s vision was to give students an opportunity to compete on a global level against kids from around the world; over the years, their programs have expanded from being a tri-state tournament to international competition—the International History Olympiad, and the International Geography Championships.
