The National History Bowl offers a competition for teams at the Middle School level in the form of the Middle School History Bowl. Some tournaments in the 2018-19 academic year will have a dedicated Middle School division. Note though that at all tournaments, Middle Schoolers are always welcome to compete in the Junior Varsity division.
The Middle School History Bowl National Championship does not require prior team qualification. Any student or students from the same school who have qualified for the Middle School National Championships may form a team and register to play in the History Bowl at the National Championships.
If a tournament has a dedicated Middle School division, Middle School teams are still welcome to participate in the Junior Varsity division rather than playing in the Middle School division. By playing in the JV division, teams can qualify to attend the High School History Bowl National Championships.
Middle School students are also welcome to compete in the History Bowl on teams with students at higher grade levels from the same school. They may also compete for non-magnet public schools (or otherwise selective) if they attend a Middle School that feeds into that non-magnet public school. Middle Schoolers wishing to play with older students at a private school must attend the same school.
