WHO WAS? History Bee - Snack & Chat Review (Homeschoolers)


The first ever WHO WAS HISTORY BEE! Read on for details!


The Who Was? History Bee is a trivia contest being held across the U.S. during the 2019-2020 school year. The winning student earns a $10,000 college scholarship, and their school wins a library of Who Was? books and fun signage celebrating the big Bee win!

Homewood Public Library is hosting the History Bee for Homeschoolers. Our session is open to any homeschooler in grades 3 to 5.
