Students who earn a qualifying score on ORQEs will qualify for Regional Finals, which are mainly in-person, buzzer-based events. There will be Regional Finals held all over the country (as well as online), between October and April. Hopefully we will be in a city near you and if you are interested in hosting, reach out to us at email@example.com.
Three events are played at Regional Finals: The National History Bee, The National Science Bee, and The National Geography Bee, and each event is $47. To participate in each event at Regional Finals, students must be qualified in their respective ORQE.
Students can qualify for the National Championships in each event if they finish in the top 50% of students who played in their division. Students who are participating in the National History Bee, National Science Bee or National Geography Bee that finish in the top 25% of those who played in their divisions qualify for the International History Olympiad, the Environmental Science Olympiad and International Geography Championships, respectively (See Step Four).
