Each year thousands of schools in the United States participate in the National Geographic Bee using materials prepared by the National Geographic Society. The contest is designed to encourage teachers to include geography in their classrooms, spark student interest in the subject, and increase public awareness about geography. Schools with students in grades four through eight are eligible for this entertaining and challenging test of geographic knowledge.
The National Geographic Bee registration fee is $100 per school until December 22, 2016, and $120 from December 23, 2016 until registration ends on January 23, 2017. Schools needing financial support can complete a Registration Discount Request form available here.
