Post by TylerV » Sun Jun 30, 2019 9:10 pm

Hello everyone!

International Academic Competitions is now accepting writer applications for the 2019-2020 season. Writers of all experience are encouraged to apply and training will be provided as needed. We will keep applications open until July 8th at which point we will begin processing applicants.

Some general guidelines:
  • Writers are not required to be 18 but, if accepted, must have a parent or guardian co-sign their contract.
  • Most writers will be asked to submit a sample of 5 questions on various subjects/difficulties based on what they mark on the form.
  • Accepted writers will be required to use the submission portal utilized by International Academic Competitions.
If you are interested, please fill out this form: https://forms.gle/ErMWt5PRguxfj2tV6.

If there are any questions feel free to contact me at tyler AT historybowl DOT com

I believe that we were told that we would receive a response in August. Should we take a lack of reply as rejection or has there simply been a hold up?

All application decisions have been made, but we are still confirming a few things before we sent out emails.

Should we read the continued lack of reply as rejection?
