What is the Geography Bee?

  • 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.

How can I participate?

  • Students are selected for the Geography Bee based on various levels of competition. The first level of competion is held at the classroom-level. Those students who are selected from their class will then move on and participate in a school-level geography contest against students from all grades. The students who win at the school-level will then represent Trexler Middle at the county-level geography competition.
