National Bible Drill Status 2020

With the ongoing concern surrounding COVID-19, the majority of State Bible Drills have been cancelled or postponed. Thus, National Bible Drill currently scheduled for June has been cancelled for 2020. 

We will still honor 2020 State Winners for the States that are able to conduct State Drills in 2020 by allowing them to attend NIT Bible Drill in 2021. State winners will compete in their respective age bracket for 2021 Red Cycle during the National Bible Drill. 

States that are able to conduct State Drills in 2020 must submit names of their 2020 State Winners in order for their 2020 State winners to be eligible to attend Nationals in 2021.  States must submit their 2020 State Winners by October 15, 2020 (date subject to change) to the NIT Bible Drill Team by completing this form.

States that submit 2020 State Winners will be able to potentially send two winners to Nationals in 2021 (one 2020 State Winner in each category—submitted by October 15, 2020—and one 2021 State Winner in each category).  Please note that all eligible 2021 National qualifiers will compete in their respective age group for the 2021 Red Cycle Bible Drill.

Thank you for understanding our decision during this transitional time for our country and our churches.  For additional questions please contact us.
