The National History Bee and Bowl held the 2016 Connecticut History Bee and Bowl at Newtown High School in Newtown, CT on Saturday, February 27. Congratulations to this year’s champions!

Varsity History Bowl: Darien
Junior Varsity History Bowl: Middlesex Middle A

Varsity History Bee: Michael Borecki, Darien
Junior Varsity History Bee: John Phipps, Middlesex Middle

Our tournament featured 13 Varsity and 10 JV teams.  In the Varsity Division, the championship match pitted Darien against second seed Greens Farms A, with the top seed coming away with the title 420-130.  Middlesex Middle was victorious in the JV Division by a 250-170 score over E.O. Smith B in the final.  Thank you to all who attended, and to all coaches, parents, and volunteers, who assisted with the tournament! Special thanks to Ms. Jacqui Kaplan for hosting and Mr. Bob Borders and Mr. Tim Madden for directing. We hope to see all teams and students at our New England Championship Tournament on our A-Set of Questions, as well as at our 2016 National Championships in April in Arlington and Washington, DC.  Thanks for a great tournament!
