West Virginia History Bowl

“In 2010, the West Virginia Division of Culture and History (WVDCH) began an exciting new challenge for eighth graders to test their West Virginia history – the West Virginia History Bowl Tournament. Teams of students from around the state face off in an academic bowl competition that focuses on West Virginia history, literature, arts, architecture, geography and culture.

“Eighth grade students in public, private and home school education programs are eligible to compete on the four-person teams in double-elimination tournament play. The regional tournament winners and the runner-up team move forward to the state tournament held in late April at the Culture Center, State Capitol Complex, in Charleston.”
