Regional Finals Event Registration

Registration for the National History Bee Regional Finals is now open for students who have qualified through the Online Regional Qualifying Exam. Click here to access the Regional Finals registration. Qualification for Regional Finals is based on student scores on the ORQE which will not be made public. Students who qualify for the Regional Finals have been notified through their sponsors. If registration does not fill for a particular region, then additional students may be notified at a later point in time prior to that particular region’s Regional Finals. Once a Regional Final’s field cap has been reached, registration for that location will be closed, and there will be no further opportunity to register for that location. Registration for each Regional Final will close either when the field cap has been reached or at a given point prior to the date of that Regional Final. IAC reserves the right to open or close registrations at any time.
