EP Humanities Championships 2020
What is the EP Humanities Championships World Series Event?
The EP Humanities Championships (EPHC) are a free event to celebrate students of all year levels and varying strengths, and the extensive range of EP Humanities and Social Sciences content. Students can be enrolled on EP Humanities/Social Sciences for free and take part in the Championships, even if they don’t currently subscribe to EP Humanities and Social Sciences.
Students complete any Humanities and Social Sciences resources and activity on EP to earn points towards the competition. By learning and revising curriculum-aligned content on EP students amass points and prizes will be awarded for students with the most points. Your students and school can earn their place on our global leaderboard!
What content is in the EP Humanities Championships?
The EPHC allows students to complete any lesson or resource from EP Humanities and Social Sciences. This includes Geography, Geography Skills, History, History Skills, Economics and Business, and for students in Australia - Civics and Citizenship. This also includes all our new resources such as our World War I, World War II and Industrial revolution Units and all new Year 7 Australian Civics and Citizenship Unit.

My students already have accounts - what do I need to do?
If your students already have EP accounts, there is nothing more you need to do - they will automatically have access to the competition, regardless of whether they are specifically enrolled in a Humanities class or not.

How does the point scoring system work?
Points are earned toward a competition by completing work in the relevant subject. These competition points are separate to full-year points. Any work that students have already learnt outside of the competition can be completed from scratch for points during the competition. Student made content will not count towards the point score. Keep in mind that students are limited to 8 hours of using EP a day.
For full details on how the points/scoring system work, check out the full guide here.
What are the prizes?
You can find a full list of prizes for the World Series here.
For all of our EP World Series events, students are able to earn a certain amount of points, and earn an achievement. Each achievement comes with a certificate to be organised at a later date. In our effort to support sustainability, EP will digitally send the certificates to a key contact at the school after the event conclusion - taking roughly 2 weeks.
