• Welcome to the US History Bee!

    The US History Bee is an individual social studies competition for primary and secondary school students across America. The US 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 the 2014-15 competition year and put your US 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.

    Contact info@ushistorybee.org if you have any questions, and we hope to see you at one of our events soon!
