Students and Schools from around the country are invited to register for any of our Regional Competitions throughout the school year – our regional and state level competitions typically involve 3 components:
- The National History Bowl
- The National History Bee
- The National Qualifying Exams.
The National History Bowl:
The National History Bowl is a team-based event, consisting of 5 guaranteed matches. Teams play each other in the 4-Quarter History Bowl style, and the top teams compete in the playoffs for the championship. Teams register with their schools, and compete together, though solo teams happen regularly!
The National History Bee:
The National History Bee is an individual event, consisting of 3 guaranteed matches. Up to 10 players may sit in a room at any time, and will compete to see who can answer 8 tossup questions correctly the fastest! Players earn bonus points by reaching 8 correct answers faster than anyone else. The top players in the History Bee will qualify for the championship, and the top half will qualify for Nationals!
The National Qualifying Exams:
During the lunch hour, players may elect to take one or several of our National Qualifying Exams. These multiple choice exams are 50 questions and 20 minutes long, and high performance on them will qualify you for the National Championships, which are buzzer based. The exams for this year include:
- The National Science Bee
- The National Political Science Bee
- The National Geography Bee
- The US History Bee
