Participants of the History Bowl club prepare for the National History Bowl, a buzzer-based history quiz competition for teams of up to six students, in their weekly meetings on Mondays.

Questions in the competition focus on the history of the arts, sciences, religion, philosophy, language, historical geography, sports and entertainment. This year, due to COVID-19, the National History Bowl competition will take place online.

Leader of the History Bowl club Micah Gold ’22 said he hopes students will bond over their shared passion for history. He also wants participants to be confident when answering questions.

“I encourage all to be bold during competitions and buzz in even when they don’t know the answer,” Gold said. “History Bowl is as much about being confident as understanding the historical material.”
