I am pleased to announce that Northern Illinois University will host the Northern Illinois US Academic Bee and Bowl on April 2nd, 2016.

Both the Bee and Bowl events will be hosted in DuSable Hall.

The Bowl is a team event with up to four players playing at one time. A round consists of 14 tossups and up to 14 bonuses, and lightning rounds at halftime. The Bee is an individual event that only consists of tossups. More information about the formats can be found here
