Introduction and Overview

Students taking tests on computers.  The National History Bee is an individual academic competition for elementary and middle school students that tests knowledge of a wide range of historical topics.

The competition is divided into three distinct stages:

Stage 1: An optional Intramural Bee and a mandatory Online Regional Qualifying Exam which students take at their school or home, under the supervision of a Sponsor.

Stage 2: The top students from the Online Regional Qualifying Exam compete against each other in a buzzer competition coordinated by the National History Bee at one of 35 sites across the United States called the Regional Finals.

Stage 3: The top finishers from the 35 Regional Finals are eligible to advance to the National Championships and compete for the title of National History Bee Champion!
