NHBB will also be the exclusive administrator of the U.S. Academic Bee & Bowl and the US Geography Olympiad and International Geography Bee Qualifying Exam.

For the past academic years, these events were administered by Academic Competition Enterprises out of Spartanburg, South Carolina. NHBB, in accordance with its operating agreement with ACE, has terminated this operating agreement with ACE today. We thank ACE for their efforts and wish them the best in their future endeavors.

Will the MS and Elementary History bee be run the same way as in the past, or will the format change to how the HS NHBB is held(no Online exam and stuff like that)?

Just saw this hadn't been answered. We will be running a similar format to previous years, including a qualifying exam and regional finals. These will be run in conjunction with the National Science Bee and an abbreviated Academic Bee.
