National Geography Bee

The National Geography Bee, the GeoBee, is an academic competition for grades 5-8. Students answer oral questions in class on a variety of geographical topics prepared by the National Geographic Society.

The top scorers from each class advance to the school bee. The top 10 from grades 5-8 compete in a double elimination round to determine who the school winner will be. The winner of the school bee then takes a test to qualify for a spot in the top 100 for the state competition.
