The National History Bee and Bowl is pleased to announce that its 2017 Greater Syracuse History Bee and Bowl will be held at Fayetteville-Manlius High School in Manlius, NY on Saturday, December 9. This tournament will be held on our C Set of questions. It does not require prior qualification, and is open to all teams and students, including from outside New York, as long as they have not yet played C Set. For further information, please contact the Tournament Coordinator, Michael Borecki, at michael@historybowl.com. Thanks, and we look forward to welcoming you and your team to Fayetteville-Manlius in December!

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.
