The National History Bee and Bowl is pleased to announce that its 2019 Alabama History Bee and Bowl will be held at Spain Park High School in Birmingham, AL on Saturday, March 9.    This tournament will run on our B Set of questions, and like all NHBB Varsity and Junior Varsity events, is open to all students, regardless of what state they are from, as long as they have not yet played this set of questions in the 2018-2019 academic year. To register, please visit this link. For further information, please email the Tournament Coordinator at the address listed below. Thanks, and we look forward to welcoming you and your team to Birmingham in March!

Note 1: 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.

Note 2: The schedule as listed below is considered tentative until registration opens, and thereafter, may still be subject to slight changes based on turnout until registration closes, at which point it will be confirmed. Students and teams looking for further guidance on the schedule should contact the Tournament Coordinator.
