Content

When crafting National History Bee questions, our writing team focuses on two central objectives: (1) emphasizing the content found in published Social Studies curricula and (2) utilizing that content in application and skills-based questions.

Specifically, we work and collaborate with the National Council for the Social Studies on content and subject matter initiatives. They were part of a collaborate publication of History Standards (found here) which guide us in every question we write.

We are pleased to announce that registration is already open for the 2014-2015 National History Bee!
