BISB to Host New England Regional History Bee this Saturday

April 08, 2015

The British International School of Boston will be filled with more than 300 competitors this Saturday, April 11. But they won't be there to win a local sports title. They'll be there to test their history knowledge.

The Boston international school is hosting the New England regional competition of the National History Bee, an annual history competition that attracts more than 10,000 students from across the country each year.
"Our students have really embraced the competition this year and it is a fantastic achievement to have four students progress to the Regional Competition, where they will compete with students from all over New England," said team leader, Head of History Mr. Will Mitchell. "As a historian, I'm excited to see the breadth and depth of subject knowledge of the next generation of historians on display here this weekend."
Participants in the National History Bee compete head-to-head to be the first to "buzz-in" with the correct answer. The winning student from Saturday's competition will earn a spot in the national competition, to be held in Kentucky this May.
To qualify for the Boston regional history bee, middle school students competed in inter-school competitions and an online national qualifying history exam.
"We are thrilled to open our doors to the New England event here at the British International School of Boston," said Headmaster Paul Wiseman. "Our students continue to embrace and excel in History, with several of our recent IB Diploma students going on to study the subject at university.
"We are honored to host 300 other passionate historians here in Jamaica Plain on Saturday. I wish all competitors the best of luck and I encourage the local community to come and support the event."
Saturday's competition will be held from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the British International School of Boston, a Boston private school. The school is located at 416 Pond Street, Boston, MA and the public is welcome to attend.
