The 2018 National Championships of the National History Bee and Bowl are fast approaching on April 27-29 in Washington, DC and Arlington, VA! We have over 200 teams currently signed up and are expecting 240-275 in total. Registration closes on April 7 at 11:59pm EDT for the National History Bowl and on April 14 at 11:59pm EDT for all individual events – sign up using the link here!
Please see the link here for general information on Nationals. Note that the main hotel (the Crystal Gateway Marriott) is either entirely sold out, or very close to it, but there are many other hotels in the Crystal City area. Use a combination of Googlemaps to check proximity to the Crystal Gateway Marriott and then – search for Crystal City in Arlington, VA – if you need to find somewhere else to stay.
If you have general questions on Nationals, please first look over the website and then if you still need assistance, please contact Jason Russell at
We will be getting in touch shortly, and then continually throughout April with all registered teams, students, coaches, and families with further details (particularly where participants need to be exactly and when they need to be there). Good luck with your preparations, and we look forward to seeing you in Arlington and Washington at the end of the month!
