The National History Bee and Bowl is pleased to announce that its 2020 Northern Virginia History Bee and Bowl will be held at Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology in Alexandria, VA on Saturday, January 11. 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.

Thanks, and we look forward to welcoming you and your team to Alexandria 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.
