National Geographic Bee

12th Annual Bee at River Valley Middle School

What is the National Geoghraphic Bee?

The National Geographic Bee is a nationwide contest for schools with any of the grades four through eight. It is an educational outreach program of the National Geographic Society. With a first-place prize of a $25,000 college scholarship—and other prizes in additional scholarships, cash, and classroom materials—the Bee is designed to encourage the teaching and study of geography. Students from schools in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, the Pacific territories, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and Department of Defense Dependents Schools take part in the Bee.
