My student qualified for both MS/ES and Junior Varsity divisions in some events, can they participate in both?

Due to the constraints of the schedule, many Varsity/JV events will take place at the same time as the MS/ES division of the same events; in those cases, students must compete in their own age division (e.g., current ninth grade students who qualified for both JV and MS/ES History Bee must participate in the MS/ES division). The exceptions to this are as follows:

  • The US Geography Championships (for MS/ES students on November 13, for V/JV students on November 20).
  • The National Political Science Bee (there is no MS/ES division in this event, however MS/ES students cannot compete in both this event and the National Humanities Bee, which runs concurrently with this event on December 10).
