The 2019 Varsity & JV National Championships of the National History Bee and Bowl are fast approaching on April 26-28 in Washington, DC and Arlington, VA! We have a great field from around the country currently signed up and hope that you will be able to join us! Registration closes on April 8 (this has been pushed back two days from the originally stated deadline of April 6 to accommodate a tournament now scheduled on April 7) at 11:59pm EDT for the National History Bowl and on (updated) April 17 at 11:59pm EDT for all individual events – please sign up using the link here!

Please see the link here for general information on Nationals. Note that rooms at the main hotel (the Crystal Gateway Marriott) are going fast, so make your reservations as soon as you can! If you have general questions on Nationals, please first look over the website and then if you still need assistance, please contact email

Note that we will once again be holding the Lorenz Cup, a History Bowl only tournament, on our A Set of questions on Thursday afternoon and evening, April 25 at the Crystal Gateway Marriott for early arrivals at Nationals who have not yet competed on A Set. Please sign up for the Lorenz Cup using the main regional tournament registration form here.

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 April!
