The 2024 Varsity & Junior Varsity National Political Science Bee National Championships will be held during the IAC Varsity/JV National Championships on Thursday, April 25, 2024 from 5pm-10pm in Arlington, Virginia.
The National Championships of the National Political Science Bee consist of two components. The first is the actual competition, which consists of three preliminary and two final rounds of buzzer-based quiz competition. Each round will have 35 questions.
The number of students who make the playoffs and who advance from the semifinals into the finals will be a function of the total number of registrants.
The second component of the National Championships of the National Political Science Bee is a dinner discussion group led by prominent figures in politics, the media, public service, and academia. These will take place at our National Championships (usually between the preliminary and playoff rounds). Participation is limited to National Political Science Bee players at Nationals, for whom it is also mandatory. A list of discussion group topics and leaders will be available in early 2024.
