Middle Schoolers Competing in the Junior Varsity Division of the National History Bee & Bowl

Middle school students and teams are always welcome to participate in the Junior Varsity Division of the National History Bee and Bowl. This can provide an additional challenge, additional competition experience, and preparation for students who plan to compete when they are older. Middle school students in the Junior Varsity Division will compete against 9th and 10th graders on harder questions than what they would encounter in the Middle School Division of the Bee and Bowl. Teams that compete in the National History Bowl at the Junior Varsity level will be able to qualify for both the Middle School National Championships and the Junior Varsity National Championships by having a winning record or winning a playoff round.
