The National History Bee and Bowl is pleased to announce that its 2018 Bergen County History Bee and Bowl will be held on Sunday, December 16 at Torah Academy of Bergen County in Teaneck. This tournament is limited to 37 History Bowl teams and 64 students in the History Bee and will hold the Bee before the Bowl as there are fewer spaces available prior to lunch. This tournament will run on our C Set of questions. This tournament, 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 the tournament later this year!

Please note! If you are only coming for the History Bowl, and have no one on your team competing in the History Bee, you can arrive between 12:15 and 12:45 – you do not need to arrive earlier in the morning.

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. 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.

Note 2: The schedule as listed below 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.
