National History Bee
www.historybowl.com (this website has information on the Varsity & Junior Varsity History Bee in the USA as well as the History Bowl)
The National History Bee is a buzzer-based history quiz competition for individual students, with approximately 100 regional and state tournaments at the Varsity & Junior Varsity levels. All of these tournaments have both Bee and Bowl components; students may compete in both as they run at separate times. Attendance at National History Bee and Bowl regional and state tournaments, as well as the National Championships (if qualified) is also open to students in 8th grade and younger, regardless of whether they are competing in the National History Bee’s official Middle School and Elementary School competitions (this does not apply to National Championships held online, though). The next Varsity & JV National History Bee National Championships will be held online on Sunday, December 6 and 20, 2020.
Note that in 2020-2021, the National History Bee is split at the regional level into US History Bee and World History Bee components. Students who qualify for Nationals in the US History Bee qualify for both the National History Bee and US History Bee National Championships. As there is no World History Bee at the National Championships, students who qualify in the World History Bee qualify only for the National History Bee National Championships (which is roughly 60% world history and 40% US history).
