THE RECORD

About 300 students representing more than 30 schools from New Jersey and New York competed in the NJ State Championships for the National History Bee and Bowl at Ridgewood High School on Saturday.

The event included both team buzzer-style competitions and written quizzes in history and geography that pushed students to think critically not just about dates and battles and treaties but also about the history of art, music, entertainment and much more.

David Madden, a 19-time champion on the TV quiz show “Jeopardy!” and alumnus of Ridgewood High, started the National History Bee and Bowl in 2010 and has since expanded the competition to more than 20 countries.

“It’s really just so much fun that you don’t realize you’re studying so hard when you’re doing it,” Madden said.
