The US History Bee is a competition with two distinct stages: Regionals and Nationals.


For information on how Regionals works, click here.


The next US History Bee National Championships will be held September 3-6, 2021.

More information about the National Championships can be found here.

At the National Championships, participants will each play in 6 Preliminary Rounds in a buzzer-based quiz format, similar to the National History Bee, but with all questions having a focus on American History. The top 32 students in each division will then advance to additional playoff rounds to determine the US History Bee National Champion.
