The National History Bee and Bowl is pleased to announce that its 2018 Colorado History Bee and Bowl will be held at Fort Collins High School on Saturday, February 17, 2018. This tournament will run on our B Set of questions, and it is open to all teams and students, including those not from Colorado, as long as they have not yet played our B Set of questions this school year. For further details and questions, please contact the Tournament Coordinator, David Madden, at director@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.
