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 motivate students to learn about the world and how it works. Students in grades four through eight are eligible for this entertaining and challenging competition. With a top prize of a $50,000 college scholarship plus other prizes 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. Students from all 50 states, the District of Columbia, U.S. territories, and the Department of Defense Dependents Schools are participating in the 2018 National Geographic Bee.
There are three levels of competition: School, state, and national. This year our school-wide champion is Zoe Fleishman. She will be submitting a written test to qualify to represent our school at the state level of the National Geographic Bee.
Congratulations to our Geography Bee finalists! All our finalists did a terrific job in our school-wide competition.
