Mehlville School District’s Oakville High School will host the regional/(state) history bowl competition on Saturday, January 26. Each state bowl will qualify a number of teams to participate in the National History Bowl to be held in Washington D.C. on April 27, 2013. The National History Bowl uses a quiz bowl style format to run their tournaments.
Schools may register multiple teams for the regional bowl, and can register underclassmen as a JV or Varsity team. Beginning this year, middle school teams can register and participate as well. The registration deadline for the regional bowl in St. Louis at Oakville High School competition is January 24, 2013. In addition, the state History Bee will be held in conjunction with the regional History Bowl on January 26, 2013, all in the Mehlville School District.
Again, the regional/(state) competition will qualify (in this case individuals) for participation in the National History Bee to be held in Washington D.C. on April 28, 2013. Please note that the national level history bowl for middle schools will be held on a different weekend then the high school nationals.
