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

Thanks for coming to the 2018 Michigan History Bee and Bowl at Triumph Academy! Thanks to everyone who assisted with reading and scorekeeping throughout the day, and to Annmarie Roelant for her help with the hosting arrangements.

Congratulations to Troy HS for winning the Michigan History Bowl! Congratulations also go to Sarod Nori from Okemos and Christopher Haddat from St. Ignatius 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.

Please note that any team with a .500 record or above in the prelims or a playoff win qualifies for Nationals. Students who finish in the top half in the Bee prelims in their division qualify for Nationals there as well. Students on champion Bowl teams and those in the top 25% of the Bee (either in prelims or overall) qualify for the 2018 International History Olympiad next summer in Berlin (July 14-22). Students scoring a 75 or above on the IGB/USGO exam also qualify for the 2018 International Geography Bee World Championships in Berlin (July 11-17).

Please let me know if you find any errors, so they can be fixed as quickly as possible.

The stats have also been posted to our respective websites. Information on Nationals for the US History Bee and the United States Geography Olympiad / International Geography Bee for those who qualified, is available on those websites.

Our 2018 National Championships will be held on April 27-29 in April in Arlington, VA and Washington, DC. We hope to see you all there! Please email us ASAP if you wish to register!

Thanks for your continued support of our competitions, and best of luck at all your remaining competitions this year!

Best regards,
Marshall Mullins
