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!

There are two ways to register:

School Registration: for any large group of people such as a school or homeschool association

Individual Registration: for any eligible child who is not otherwise participating under a School Registration

Both School and Individual Registrations should be completed by an adult Sponsor who will proctor Stage 1 and serve as a point of contact for Stages 2 and 3. The registration fee for both School and Individual Registrations is $125.
