The National History Bee and Bowl is pleased to announce that the 2016 Connecticut History Bee and Bowl will be held at Newtown High School in Sandy Hook, CT on Saturday, February 27, 2016. This tournament will run on our B Set of questions and is open to all schools and students, regardless of what state they are from, as long as they have not yet played on our B Set. This tournament does not require prior qualification. For questions, please contact the tournament coordinator, Victor Brady, at victor@historybowl.com. Thanks for your interest in our tournament, and we hope that you and your team will be able to join us!

Note: 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.
