The US History Bee is pleased to announce the official National Median Scores for the 2016-2017 competition season:

A set – Varsity 78, JV 35
B set – Varsity 70, JV 46
C set – Varsity 70, JV 51

All students who score at or above these scores qualify for the 2017 US History Bee National Championships even if they were not in the top half of students in their age division at the site where they took the exam. Students taking the Exams independently (i.e. not at a site) can only qualify by finishing at or above these scores. Students who took an Exam at a site who did not qualify automatically but who now do will be contacted (most often through their history bowl coaches) by the end of the first week of March to let them know they have qualified. We hope that all qualified students can join us for our National Championships on April 21 in Arlington, VA!
