The National History Bowl
- Eligibility: High School Varsity and Junior Varsity students, as well as Middle School students
- Competitors: Teams of up to 6 (with 4 playing at a time)
- Competition Style: Buzzer Based
The National History Bowl is a buzzer-based team history quiz competition with approximately 100 regional and state tournaments at the Varsity & JV levels. Teams consist of up to 6 students, up to 4 of whom play together at any given time. Solo-student teams are also encouraged to compete and often do. Each regional or state tournament runs on either the A, B, or C Set of questions, so teams can compete up to three times. All of these tournaments have both Bee and Bowl components; students may compete in both as they run at separate times. At all regional and state tournaments students can qualify for the annual National Championships. Note for Middle School students: Middle School Nationals teams can also be built around a student who is qualified for Nationals in the National History Bee.
