The National History Bee and Bowl is pleased to announce that its 2017 Houston History Bee and Bowl will be held at St. John’s High School in Houston, TX on MONDAY, December 4. This tournament will take place in the afternoon after school.  

Note the time change!  This tournament will now open at 4:00 to give players time to arrive, and the Bowl Playoffs have been expanded.

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 Texas, as long as they have not yet played C Set. For further information, please contact the Tournament Coordinator, Marshall Mullins, at marshall@historybowl.com. Thanks, and we look forward to welcoming you and your team to St. John’s!

Note: During the registration period, 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.
