Registration Deadlines: Regional Finals registrations for the History Bee, Geography Bee, and Science Bee typically close on the 2nd Monday (12 days) before the tournament date at 11:59 pm EASTERN TIME. Once registration closes there will be a late registration (waitlist) process. For all tournaments, there is a $10 per bee registration surcharge (for a total of $57 per bee subject) for registering after the deadline. After the deadline has passed, we fix the field cap and lock registrations and are unable to guarantee a spot in the competition. If you wish to register late, please follow the instructions on the tournament’s registration page, and if more positions are available, a staff member will follow up with instructions and a link to register and make payment.
History Bowl and Academic Bowl registrations typically have their first deadline on the 2nd Friday (8 days) before the tournament date at 11:59pm Eastern time. After this date, until 11:59pm on the Monday (5 days) before the tournament, teams may register for a slight surcharge. After the second deadline, tournament registration cannot be guaranteed, though email firstname.lastname@example.org to see if space is available. If so, there is a further surcharge.
