National Geographic GeoBee

Developed by the National Geographic Society in 1988 to promote geographic knowledge among young people in the United States, the National Geographic GeoBee is an academic competition for public schools, private schools and homeschools in the U.S. and its territories, as well as Department of Defense Dependents Schools. Students in grades four through eight from nearly 10,000 schools participate annually for a chance to win college scholarships and the glory of being the National Geographic GeoBee Champion. Over more than three decades, 120 million students have learned about the world through participation in the GeoBee.

CCE will be hosing the National Geographic GeoBee for our students and guests. We will be providing a GeoBee coordinator and the opportunity to compete in the preliminary competition on December 12th. The winner of this CCE-hosted competition will be eligible to take the state qualifying test in February. If the student qualifies, he/she will compete at the State GeoBee on March 28, 2020. The National Championship will be held in Spring 2020.
