The History Bee is a 4-stage academic competition for our Bulldogs to showcase their knowledge and compete with others who love history, current events, economics, geography, and culture. All Bulldogs compete in the first, intramural, online, written qualifying round in their 6th, 7th, and 8th-grade Social Studies classes. Students that qualify to advance to the next stage of the competition choose their own level of participation and preparation. The bottom line: It's a lot of fun and very exciting for everyone who LOVES history, current events, and all other things Social Studies!

The History Bee follows the calendar set by ACE for National History Bee contestants across the country. The classroom qualifying round is generally the first day back from winter break, top 10 school qualifiers take the online test to qualify for regionals later in January, regional competition is around spring break, and national competition is late May/early June.
