Dear NHBB & USGO Students, Coaches, Parents, and Teams,

Thanks for coming to the 2017 Connecticut History Bee and Bowl! Thanks to Newtown High School for hosting, to Jacqui Kaplan for all of her help in coordinating the hosting arrangements, to Robert Borders for directing, and to everyone who helped with reading and scorekeeping throughout the day.

Congratulations to Darien A in the Varsity and Wilton in the JV for triumphing in the History Bowl! Congratulations also go to Michael Borecki of Darien and Alex Koutsoukos of Wilton for their victories in the Varsity and JV History Bees! I hope that you and your students enjoyed the competition; if you have any feedback on how things went or questions about the day, please just let me know.

Our 2017 National Championships will be held on April 21-23 in April in Arlington, VA and Washington, DC. Registration is now open here for the National History Bee and Bowl and US History Bee and at this link for the US Geography Olympiad and International Geography Bee. Registration runs through April 1 for NHBB and USHB and April 10 for USGO and IGB.

Thanks so much and hope to see many of you at Nationals in April!

Best regards,
Marshall Mullins
