CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) – Regional competitions start this week in the seventh 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. 5 to 27. Eighth-graders in public, private and home-schooled education programs are eligible to compete on the four-person teams in double-elimination tournament play.

A second-chance regional also will be held March 12 at Buckhannon-Upshur High School.

The regional winners and runners-up will participate in the state championship tournament at the state Culture Center in Charleston on April 26.
