The National History Bee and Bowl regrets to announce that its 2018 Southern Kentucky History Bee and Bowl has been cancelled due to weather.  This tournament has been tentatively rescheduled for February 10.

This tournament will be held on our B Set of questions. It does not require prior qualification, and is open to all teams and students, including from outside Kentucky, as long as they have not yet played B Set. For further information, please contact the Tournament Coordinator, Jason Russell, at jason@historybowl.com. Thanks, and we look forward to welcoming you and your team to Glasgow 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.
