Last month, IMSA hosted a regional for NHBB's U.S. History Bee, with IMSA's Andrew Salij earning first place and Waleed Ali getting second.
IMSA will be competing at Nationals in Arlington, Virginia the last weekend in April. IMSA's students, led by Math Faculty Dr. Noah Prince, will compete in the following events: National History Bowl, National History Bee, U.S. History Bee, and U.S. Geography Olympiad.
