Angela Kamrath

The 2nd American History & Western Civilization Challenge Bowl™ (AHWCCB) will be held on January 25-26, 2019, at The King’s College in New York City!  The AHWCCB is an academic college competition and scholarship.  Student teams from the Grove City College, Abigail Adams Institute, Princeton University , and The King’s College of New York will compete for academic recognition and scholarship prizes at the 2019 event.

The Semi-Finals Essay Question has been released as follows:

“Since the beginning of human history, most people have lived under some form of authoritarianism.  In such regimes, rulership was largely a matter of the elite few ruling over and living off of the unprivileged many.  Only during the last few hundred years has the idea of the constitutional accountability of government to the populace as a whole risen to prominence.  Discuss the philosophical and historical causes of the ascendancy of this idea, including key events, leaders, and reasoning.”
