National History Bowl

The National History Bowl is a fun team-based buzzer activity that history lovers can use to practice with a buzzer, fundraise, compete against other schools and best of all, learn more about history! The National History Bowl is an entirely independent competition from the National History Bee wherein teams of students go head-to-head answering social studies questions read aloud!
