Resources

We have provided a number of different resources in order to help students grow their knowledge of history. We hope you find these resources helpful as you prepare for the National History Bee!

The Official National History Bee Study Guide is an outline of many of the subjects that the National History Bee tests. The Study Guide is just that, a guide to various important historical people, places, and things that any National History Bee participant can utilize as an aid in their study of history. The Study Guide can be found here.

We have compiled a list of free educational websites for participants to prepare for the National History Bee which can be found here.

We also have Intramural Bee sample quesitons for the Written Test and the Oral Competition. We have also prepared ten short practice quizzes that will be very similar in format to the Online Regional Qualifying Exam to get a feel for that format.

A copy of the 2012-2013 Online Regional Qualifying Exam is now available here. This is the exam used by students all over the country to determine which students would qualify for the Regional Finals.

We also have a few sample questions from the Regional Finals to give participants an idea of how those questions are structured. Those sample questions can be found here.

We are pleased to announce that registration is already open for the 2013-2014 National History Bee!
