The Brazilian National History Olympiad (ONHB) is a knowledge olympiad created by the University of Campinas in 2009. ONHB's main goal is to promote an activity that will encourage study and knowledge in the human sciences, awaken talents and aptitudes, and involve participants in constructive challenges. Students compete in groups of three (plus a faculty advisor), completing six online phases each lasting a week where students complete specific tasks and respond to questions, and a final in-person phase. At least 200 teams are invited to this final phase at the University of Campinas where they complete a written test before receiving the final results and medals.
