• Welcome to the US History Bee!

    The U.S. History Bee is an individual social studies competition for high school students across America. The U.S. History Bee puts an emphasis on what students are learning in the classroom, and rewards their passion for learning.

    We invite you to join us for one of our Regional events and put your U.S. History knowledge to the test today! United States History is a subject that every American student studies in one form or another; we want to give these students an opportunity to be recognized for their hard work.

    Our Regional Events are just a few hours after school and use a fun buzzer-based format. Top students at the Regional events win prizes and qualify to attend our National Championship in Washington, D.C where the winner will be crowned U.S. History Bee National Champion and take home a $5,000 prize!
