The National History Bee and Bowl is looking forward to its annual Capital Region History Bee and Bowl Championships for the 2017-18 academic year. As soon as the host site and date are confirmed, that information will be posted here. For further details and questions, please contact the Tournament Coordinator, Raynell Cooper, at raynell@historybowl.com. Thanks, and we hope that you and your team will be able to join us!

Note: During the lunch break, we will offer the National Qualifying Exams for the US Geography Olympiad / International Geography Bee (one exam serves to qualify students for the National Championships of both competitions) and the US History Bee. Both exams cost $10 and can be signed up for on the day of the tournament; pre-registration is not required. Students planning on taking one exam are recommended not to leave during the lunch break (they can bring a lunch or have a teammate get lunch for them). Students planning on taking both exams should definitely plan on staying at the school for lunch.

This tournament will also include a dedicated Middle School division! If you have students in the 8th Grade or below who wish to participate in the Bee and/or the Bowl at this tournament, please feel free to register them as Middle Schoolers.
