The National History Bee and Bowl is pleased to announce that its 2020 New Jersey History Bee and Bowl State Championships will be held at Ridgewood High School in Ridgewood, NJ on SUNDAY, January 19! This date has been moved from its original date of Saturday, January 18 due to a projected snowstorm on Saturday. All other times remain the same. This tournament will run on our B 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 2019-2020 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 Ridgewood in January!
Note 1: During the lunch break, we will offer the National Qualifying Exams for the US Geography Championships / International Geography Bee (one exam serves to qualify students for the National Championships of both competitions), the US History Bee, the National Political Science Bee, and the National Science Bee. All 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 at the address listed below.
Note 3: This tournament will also have a Middle School Division in the National History Bowl. This tournament will not have a Middle School Division in the National History Bee, but Middle School students are encouraged to compete in the Junior Varsity Division of the National History Bee at this tournament.
