LAST CHANCE FOR SCHOOLS TO REGISTER FOR THE 2013 NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC BEE The National Geographic Bee is a school competition for students in any grades four through eight. Excite your students about the world around them and reward those who excel in their knowledge of geography by giving them a chance to compete in a school geographic bee.

Principals must register their schools to receive the contest materials necessary to conduct a school level Bee.
