he National History Bowl is split into Varsity, Junior Varsity, Middle School and Elementary School divisions. The Varsity division is open to teams with at least one 11th or 12th grader. The Junior Varsity division is open to students in 10th grade and younger, the Middle division is open to students in 8th grade and younger and the Elementary division is open to students in 6th grade and younger.  Teams can choose to play in higher divisions if they wish or if necessary.
Teams compete at Regional tournaments, both in person and online.  Teams who win half of their preliminary games or win a playoff game are invited to compete at the National Championships.
History Bowls take place across the country starting in October.

At the Regional and National levels, The National History Bowl is a buzzer-based history quiz competition for teams. Teams compete against other teams in a series of rounds where they attempt to be the first to ring in and answer paragraph-length questions about various topics in history. Each correct answer usually results in 10 points, though in some parts of the match, correctly answering quickly results in more points.  At Regional tournaments, there are usually 5 preliminary rounds, and a single elimination tournament among the qualifiers to decide the champion. Students who win half of their preliminary rounds qualify for the National Championships, which consists of 10 matches or more to determine the National Champion.

This is a trivia style question and answer competition. Students are scored based on the number of correct questions answered. See competition website for complete details.

Eligibility:
In order to compete in the History Bowl, you must be 19 years or younger at the time of your State or Regional Bee.

Students in dual enrollment with a university who have not yet completed their high school diploma are also eligible. Individual homeschooled students and homeschool associations may also compete.  There are no geographic limitations to participating in state or regional History Bees - a student from Maine can compete in a Hawaii tournament. However, students may only compete in one tournament per question set.
