Dear Tournament Participants, On behalf of the organizers, the officials, the coaches and our housers, we welcome all of you to the beautiful city of Vienna and our school on the edge of the Vienna Woods for the 2018 CEESA Knowledge Bowl tournament! For nearly 60 years The American International School Vienna has served the aspirations of global citizens. Interscholastic opportunities give us the chance to test ourselves and learn from each other. We hope all teams are ready to compete and to ‘show what you know’. We get together across the region to share our talents, and in doing so, we have time and space enough to appreciate our connectedness and our common journey as students in international schools. We hope you enjoy the tournament, that your brilliance rises to the occasion and that all teams grow through the weekend. Have fun, enjoy your stay here and engage with each other during the tournament. One never knows when a connection or a friendship begun at an event life this might lead to meeting again at university or on a career path you cannot yet imagine. Good luck to all! Sincerely,

Steve Razidlo, AISV Director


Welcome to the 2018 CEESA Knowledge Bowl. Over the course of the next few days our organizers and volunteers hope that their time and effort will lead to you having a fantastic experience. Although competitive, our goal for this tournament is that you have a chance to enjoy the camaraderie and sportsmanship that goes with people challenging each other to be better. Whether you experience the joys of victory or the challenges of a disappointing result, you are to be applauded for taking on the challenge of competition and the risk of failure. In the end, all of these efforts are here to help you develop the character traits that will serve you well long after your knowledge bowl career has come to an end. Good luck!

Jarret Lambie, AISV HS Principal


Regulations For Students These regulations shall be followed by students participating in all events (whether athletic, academic, cultural etc.) organized and sponsored by the Central & Eastern European Schools Association (CEESA). Any student who participates in a CEESA event agrees, by signing below, to obey all regulations. 1) Students shall obey all instructions given them by their host parents and their coaches as if these instructions were given to them by their own parents. This applies to all activities irrespective of location undertaken during the period of the CEESA sponsored event. 2) Smoking, any other use of tobacco, the drinking of alcohol and the use of drugs are not permitted. Students involved with CEESA activities may not go to bars or nightclubs. 3) Housing arrangements made by the responsible official of the host school may not be changed. 4) Student curfew for all CEESA sponsored events is 22:00. Students must be in the home of the host parent by this time. Students in grades 6, 7 and 8 are not allowed out of the host’s care unless chaperoned by a host parent and/or an event sponsor. (Schools and Families may set earlier curfew times. Families MAY NOT extend curfew times.) 5) Neither host families nor students may negotiate changes to the CEESA regulations for students with respect to curfew, housing arrangements, the use of tobacco, alcohol or drugs or any other rules or provisions set forth by the host school. 6) These regulations apply to all students- both those from the host school and those visiting throughout the event’s duration and, for visiting students, apply also during the journey to and from the site of the event. 7) Students must display appropriate respectful behavior at all times to: their peers, event officials, event sponsors, coaches and all members of the host community. Violation of these regulations will be reported to the responsible CEESA Official and to the student’s coach and/or advisor.


Statement of Integrity and Fair Play The purpose of the Central and Eastern European Schools Association is to provide a venue for students from member schools to compete or gather in an environment that is safe, challenging, professional and educational. Each student is given the opportunity to demonstrate her/his best ability while maintaining a spirit of respect and co-operation with fellow students from various international backgrounds. Each event involves students and adults in their different roles: these include student athletes or participants, chaperones, coaches and spectators. All those involved in the event are expected to uphold the same spirit of respect and co-operation. This spirit is demonstrated by fair play among students, positive encouragement from coaches, impartial judgments from officials and respectful enthusiasm from spectators. The behavior of the adults is crucial to the successful educational aspect of the event. The adults act as models for our student participants. Therefore profanity, deliberately making noises that interfere with the performance of a competing student, the condemnation of coaches or officials, or any behavior that is disrespectful or degrading to the CEESA standard of sportsmanship, jeopardizes the purposes of the CEESA organization and, most of all, jeopardizes the quality of the experience for the students involved. As this event ensues, we ask that all of our parents, coaches and students keep this vision of our purpose in mind.

Tournament Citizenship As athletes, coaches, officials and spectators we all have a role in an athletic event. Together we all have RESPONSIBILITIES to make this event a positive and healthy experience for all! The students: Maximizes one’s potential in the pursuit of individual and team excellence.
