The National History Bowl is also available for students in Middle and Elementary School. The National Championships for the National History Bowl for middle and elementary school teams are overseen by a separate organization known as ACE according to the ACE-NHBB operating agreement, which runs through the end of the 2018-2019 school year.
Middle and Elementary School History Bowl teams are also welcome to compete at various regional tournaments. At some tournaments that have a Junior Varsity and Varsity division (these are overseen by NHBB, not ACE), there may be a separate middle school division – for example, the 2015 Lower Hudson Regional History Bowl had a separate middle school division as shown here.
Middle School teams are also welcome to compete in the Junior Varsity division at the National History Bowl high school-level tournaments, which is overseen by NHBB, not ACE. At these tournaments, middle school teams can qualify for both Junior Varsity Nationals (if they finish their preliminary rounds with a .500 winning percentage or better, or win a playoff game) and for Middle School Nationals (if they win at least one match against a high school team or finish with a .500 winning percentage or better).
