Thank you so much for your interest in the National History Bee and National Science Bee!
In order for students to qualify for our Regional Finals competitions in either of these categories, they will be required to take a FREE Online Regional Qualifying Exam (ORQE). These exams will be available later in the fall, and your registration here will allow us to contact you to let you know when they are ready.
Some schools also hold “intramural” competitions for their students to determine who will qualify to take the ORQE. We will have free materials available to do just that if you would like available by November 1, but it is absolutely not required. Any student is welcome to take the ORQE as long as they are a US student in 8th grade and below.
Thank you again for your registration, and we will be in touch as soon as the ORQE is ready!
