2020 National Sports and Entertainment History Bee

For 2020, the Sports and Entertainment Bee will feature 2 preliminary rounds of 40 questions each. Both the JV and Varsity Divisions are capped at 56 players. There will also be a Family and Coaches Division, which will be capped at 20 players. Students competing in the International Geography Bee are not allowed to compete, as the IGB finals will run concurrently. For 2020, the Sports and Entertainment Bee will not be broken into separate two separate competitions with one on Sports and one on Entertainment, but rather will feature both Sports and Entertainment in roughly equal amounts.

The rules of the National Sports History Bee and National Entertainment History Bee in the prelims are mostly the same as the rules for National History Bee, except the Sports & Entertainment Bee rounds (there are 2 prelims) have 40 questions, not 30 or 35. The bonus point system works as follows:

Out on question 10: 7 bonus points, score of 17
Out on question 11-12: 6 bonus points, score of 16
Out on question 13-15: 5 bonus points, score of 15
Out on question 16-20: 4 bonus points, score of 14
Out on question 21-25: 3 bonus points, score of 13
Out on question 26-30: 2 bonus points, score of 12
Out on question 31-35: 1 bonus point, score of 11
Out on question 36-40: 0 bonus points, score of 10

In the final round, featuring the top 10 students in each division (sudden victory questions will be used to determine the last playoff spot(s) if needed) we will use the Nationals Bee Playoffs Scoring System for scoring. 30 questions will be played. A student can win with a score of 40; if no one has reached 40 by question 30, then the highest point total wins, or sudden victory playoff questions are played. Ties are broken for the top three spots only.
