Now Rescheduled (again!)

The National History Bee and Bowl is pleased to announce that its 2018 Southern New Jersey History Bee and Bowl will be held at Donovan Catholic High School in Toms River, NJ on Saturday, February 17.

(This tournament was rescheduled from the snowed out first and second scheduled dates on December 9 and 16).

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 New Jersey, as long as they have not yet played C Set. For further information, please contact the Tournament Coordinator, Shravan Balaji, at shravan@historybowl.com. Thanks, and we look forward to welcoming you and your team to Donovan Catholic in February!

Note: During the lunch break, 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. Students planning on taking one exam are recommended not to leave during the lunch break (they can bring a lunch or have a teammate get lunch for them). Students planning on taking both exams should definitely plan on staying at the school for lunch.
