*********************************************

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.  State qualifiers compete in an oral competition at the state level, which is usually held in late March or early April.  To compete, invited qualified students must be present at the State Bee on the assigned day and at the assigned time.  State winners are invited to National Geographic headquarters in late May to compete in the national finals for scholarships in the amount of U.S. $50,000, $15,000 and $10,000.
