CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — Regional competitions start next month in the sixth annual West Virginia History Bowl.
The competition is designed to test eighth-grade history buffs on their knowledge of West Virginia culture, geography, literature and sports.
The eight regional matches are scheduled to take place from Feb. 6 to March 7. Eighth-graders in public, private and home-schooled education programs are eligible to compete on the four-person teams in double-elimination tournament play.
The winner and runner-up teams are invited to the tournament championship at the Culture Center in Charleston on May 5.
