The seventh annual Latino History Bee, the only one of its kind in the nation, kicks off at 5 p.m. on Friday, April 29 at Indian Springs High School Performing Arts Theater. This year’s Latino History Bee will take a more creative, artistic feel as students infuse the poetry and artwork of prominent Latino figures into the annual competition.

SBCUSD students from 11 schools, covering grades 6–12, will compete on Friday in a trivia-style competition that aims to teach students about Latino history and culture. The bee is divided into three rounds, with each round focusing on a different theme. Round one focuses on Latino history. During round two, students must identify Latino artwork, including the title, artist, and country of origin. New this year for round three, students will present a Latino-inspired dance, skit, monologue, or other performance.

Each question has a point value, and as students earn points for correct answers, they advance towards the top prize. At the end of the evening, three prizes will be awarded in each of two divisions—middle school and high school.

The public is invited to watch as students test their knowledge of Latino and Latin-American history, geography, and culture.

The event is being held in collaboration with some of the District’s career pathways and the Visual and Performing Arts (VAPA) department, as this year will also host the first Latino Art Gallery. The gallery will be in the foyer of the theater.
