The National History Bee and Bowl is pleased to announce that it will be holding its 2017 Virginia History Bee and Bowl State Championships at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, VA on Saturday, March 4, 2017. The exact location on the UVA campus will be conveyed to all registered teams and posted here in advance of the tournament. Like all regional and state championship events this tournament does not require prior qualification. This tournament will run on our A Set of questions this year, and it is open to all teams and students, including those from out of state, as long as they have not played the question set. For further details, please contact the Tournament Coordinator, Raynell Cooper, at raynell@historybowl.com. Thanks, and we hope you and your team will be able to join us!

Note: During lunch, we will administer the National Qualifying Exams for the US Geography Olympiad and the US History Bee. Students can take both exams and register for them either in advance or at the tournament itself; each costs $10. Students who are taking one exam are recommended to have someone else get lunch for them. Students who plan on taking both exams should definitely plan on having someone get lunch for them.
