The National History Bee and Bowl is pleased to announce the 2016 Alabama History Bee and Bowl. The tournament site and date have not yet been finalized – once they are, they will be posted here. This tournament will run on our B Set of questions, and is open to all schools and students, regardless of where they are from, as long as they have not yet played our B Set.

During the lunch break, students will have the opportunity to take the National Qualifying Exams for either or both the US Geography Olympiad and the US History Bee. The cost is $10 per student per exam. Students who take one exam are highly recommended to bring a lunch or have someone obtain lunch for them. Students who take both exams should definitely plan on one of these options.

For further information, please contact the tournament coordinator, Raynell Cooper at raynell@historybowl.com. Thanks for your interest in our tournament, and we look forward to seeing you and your team in Alabama this year!
