Congratulations to Texas Champions Chelsea Crawford and Joshua Belch!
What? The Constitution and History Bee are exciting and friendly academic competitions that promotes the study of the U.S. Constitution and History.
Who can Compete? Every family member (3rd grade through 8th grade) of a paid parent/guardian at the Great Home School Convention (GHC) can participate.
When and Where? Thursday of the GHC, 12:00 - 1:30. This means, that you will be able to have your child compete, and you won't miss any talks of the convention. We will be posting the room number as soon as we receive it. Also, this information will be available at the Sign In Booth at the Convention. In Texas, the Bee will take place in the Ballroom.
What is the GHC? The GHC is short for Great Homeschool Convention, which are the Greatest National Home School Conventions in the United States of America. Go Here for Details.
How? Pay to attend the GHC. Then, Sign up your child (children) to compete by selecting the event location and correct category on this page below. The Classical Historian will confirm your payment with GHC. Two weeks before the GHC, The Classical Historian will notify you of the exact schedule regarding the competition. During the Competition, kids will use a Buzzer System as shown below.
Why? America needs young people who understand, respect, and are excited about the U.S. Constitution and about history. Kids love history games! The Constitution and History Bee motivates students to study, and it is a way for parents and teachers to celebrate academic achievement.
Categories: There are two grade levels, with each grade level offering two different competitions. Students may sign up for two competitions within the appropriate age category. I. Elementary (Grades 3-5): Constitution Bee, History Bee II. Junior High (Grades 6-8): Constitution Bee, History Bee
Q and A 1. How can my son prepare for it? We recommend starting with our products below. 2. What part of the Bee are parents invited for? Parents are invited for the entire Bee(s) 3. Is there any time the kids have with you beforehand? Mr. De Gree will be available after the Bee until the Exhibit Hall opens. 3. How long does it last……how many questions might he get, etc? The maximum number of students competing in one round is 10. Each child has a buzzer. The proctor will read a paragraph out loud, describing someone or a person in history or in the Constitution. Once a child knows the answer, he or she buzzes. The first contestant to 10 points wins. If a wrong answer is given, the other contestants may answer. Four wrong answers will disqualify a contestant.
