2nd American History & Western Civilization Challenge Bowl™ will be held on Jan 25-26, 2019, in NYC!

Angela Kamrath

Provost Dr. Mark Hijleh and Development Director Michael Toscano of The King’s College meet with AHEF Co-Founder Jack Kamrath in NYC to plan the 2nd American History & Western Civilization Challenge Bowl (AHWCCB).

AHEF’s 2nd American History & Western Civilization Challenge Bowl™ (AHWCCB) will be held on Jan. 25-26, 2019, in New York City at The King’s College-NY.

The four competing teams will be students from:  Harvard University, Princeton University, Grove City College, and The King’s College of NY.

AHWCCB™ is an academic competition and scholarship for college/university students who compete in their knowledge and understanding of Western Civilization and America’s history and governance, founding principles and philosophy, and civil institutions in order to determine America’s top colleges in educating students in these subjects.

AHEF aims to address the growing deficiency of civic knowledge among Americans as reported in the last 20 years as well as the neglect or de-emphasizing of objective civic education in schools over the last 50 years.  AHEF seeks to raise awareness of the importance of civic education and to encourage and incentivize schools, teachers, and students to teach and learn these subjects.

The goals of the AHWCCB™ are:
1) to encourage college programs and students to teach and learn these subjects/principles, the American idea, and what it means to be an American;
2) to ignite excitement, engagement, humor, fun, and youthful appeal in the learning of America’s heritage;
3) to improve understanding, appreciation, and love of the United States of America;
4) to develop informed, patriotic leaders and contributors in American society; and
5) to develop an educated citizenry essential to our self-governing republic.

Each semi-final student team member will receive a $1,000 cash scholarship award.  Each finalist student team member will receive a $2,000 cash scholarship award.  Each winning student team member will receive a $4,000 cash scholarship award.
