The National History Bee and Bowl is pleased to announce that its 2018 Virginia History Bee and Bowl State Championships will be held at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville on Saturday, March 10. This tournament, as always, will run on our A Set of questions. It is open to all teams, including those from out of state, as long as they have not played the A Set yet. For further details and questions, please contact the Tournament Coordinator, Marshall Mullins, at marshall@historybowl.com. Thanks, and we hope that you and your team will be able to join us!

Note: This tournament will take place in New Cabell Hall. The location is shown on a map of the UVA campus here

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.
