The National History Bee and Bowl is pleased to announce that its 2019 Wisconsin History Bee and Bowl State Championships will be held ONCE AGAIN, at Whitnall High School in Greenfield, WI on Saturday, March 2.    This tournament is no longer taking place at the middle school, which is across the street from the high school!  This tournament will run on our A 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. 

This tournament will also feature a Middle School Division in the History Bowl, if at least 4 Middle School teams register. During the Bee portion of the day, middle school students can decide to either compete in the JV Division of the National History Bee or compete in the Middle School International Geography Bee Regional Quiz Tournament (which functions like a History Bee, but with Geography-themed questions). The Geography Quiz Tournament is only open to students in 8th grade and younger; students in grade 6 and younger will play in a separate Elementary Division.

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 Greenfield in March!

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.
