Our 2023-24 MS/ES season is underway! We look forward to your participation!

If you are interested in hosting a Middle and Elementary School Regional Finals tournament for the National History Bee, National Science Bee, and National Geography Bee at your school this year, please email

Regional Finals are open to all students who have qualified via the Online Regional Qualifying Exam – click here to learn more about the process and the road to Nationals! You can compete at any site (including at sites out of your state) as long as you are qualified in that subject, and have not yet played that tournament’s designated set of questions for that subject.

REGISTRATION DEADLINESAll registrations close on the 2nd Sunday (13 Days) before the tournament date at 11:59 pm EASTERN. Once registration closes there will be a Late Registration (Waitlist) Process – For all tournaments, there is a $10 per bee registration surcharge ($57 per bee subject) for registering after the deadline. After the deadline has past, we fix the field cap and lock registrations – thus we are unable to guarantee a spot in the competition. If you wish to register late, please follow the instructions on the Tournament’s registration page and if more positions are available – a staff member will follow up with instructions and a link to register and make payment.

Click on each tournament for its registration page and further details, this list will be updated as more Regional Finals are scheduled.
