The National History Bee and Bowl is pleased to announce that its 2019 Indiana History Bee and Bowl will be held at Rensselaer High School in Rensselaer, IN on Saturday, February 23.    This tournament will run on our C 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 Rensselaer in February!

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.

Dear NHBB & USGO/IGB Students, Coaches, Parents, and Teams,

Congratulations to Cincinnati Country Day School in the Varsity and Grundy Center in the JV for winning the titles in the History Bowl! Congratulations also go to Cade Smith of Cincinnati Country Day and Joseph Janssen of Grundy Center for their victories in the Varsity and JV History Bees!
