Info for Middle Schools

For the 2014-2015 school year, NHBB will once again be offering a Middle School Division of the National History Bowl. In contrast with our tournaments last year, though, most of these competitions will not be held in conjunction with our high school events (a few may be – if so, this will be indicated on our tournament websites). Instead, there will be separate middle school History Bowl tournaments, some of which may be held in conjunction with middle school National History Bee events.
That said, middle school teams ARE welcome at all of our high school tournaments, if they are willing to play in the Junior Varsity Division. For some teams, this will not pose any problems; for others, it may be a bit difficult. Please see our high school-level questions from past years (click on the appropriate tab on the left) to determine if participation in the JV Division is suitable for your team.
