  • Questions will be taken from prior year’s official National Geographic Bee contests. The format will be mostly oral Q & A with a few short written answers and map-reading activities. There will be a few practice, warm-up rounds before competition questions are asked.
  • The Bee will consist of Practice, Final, and Championship Rounds, if needed, to obtain a single, school-level winner.
  • Homeschooled students in 4th- 8th grades may participate.
  • This is a school-level bee only. Since the National Geographic Bee was discontinued in 2019, the winner will not advance to further tiers of competition.
