The National History Bee will be comprised of three levels during the 2018-19 season.

  • Online Qualifying Exam – In the fall of 2018 (date TBD), students will be able to register to take the Online Qualifying Exam for the National History Bee. These exams may be administered at the student’s school under supervision or at home under supervision for homeschooled students. There will be no cost for students to take the Online Qualifying Exam. All students are encouraged to participate. Scores on the Online Qualifying Exam will be utilized to determine which students have qualified for the Regional Finals. Scores will not be made public.
  • Regional Finals – Dates and locations for the 2019 National History Bee Regional Finals have yet to be finalized. We are planning Regional Finals in the general locations listed below, but be aware that these are by no means final. If a suitable host is not found in a particular location, it is possible that no Regional Final will be held in that location. In such an event, students from those regions will be assigned to the closest possible Regional Finals locations. Regional Finals will be held from February 16 to April 13, 2019 and will be in conjunction with the National Science Bee and the US Academic Bee on the same date at the same location.
  • National Championships – The National Championships of the National History Bee will be held as a component of the US Academic Bee and Bowl, to be held from June 6-10, 2019. The location for this event is still to be determined. Students will qualify for the National Championships based on their finish at the Regional Finals. Specific qualification requirements will be announced at a later date.
