About This Scholarship

The National Constitution Bee is a competition that tests participants’ knowledge of the United States Constitution and its history. The competition is open to students in grades 8-12 from all over the United States. The National Constitution Bee is typically held in multiple rounds. The preliminary rounds are conducted online, where participants are asked to complete a timed multiple-choice test on constitutional history and principles. The top scorers from the online round are then invited to compete in the final round, which is held in-person and involves a series of oral and written questions about the Constitution.

The competition offers a range of prizes to winners, including cash awards, scholarships, and recognition for their achievements. The National Constitution Bee is organized by the Bill of Rights Institute, a nonprofit organization that aims to educate young people about the principles of the Constitution and the importance of civic engagement.

The National Constitution Bee is an important opportunity for students to deepen their knowledge of the Constitution and its relevance to contemporary issues. The competition helps to promote civic education and engagement among young people and encourages them to become informed and active citizens.
