For the 32nd year, the National Geographic Society is holding the National Geographic GeoBee for students in the fourth through eighth grades. Thousands of schools are competing in this year’s contest from all across the United States and the five U.S. territories. Also competing are Department of Defense Dependents Schools around the world.

Next Thursday, during advisory, January 9th BRMS grade-level champions will compete in the BRMS GeoBee.  The winner will advance to the next level of competition, a qualifying test to determine state competitors. Up to 100 of the top test scorers in each state become eligible to compete in their State GeoBee. 

The winners of the State GeoBees receive an all-expenses-paid trip to participate in the GeoBee national championship in Spring 2020. Students will be competing for cash prizes, scholarships and an all-expenses-paid Lindblad expedition to the Galápagos Islands aboard the National Geographic Endeavour ll.

The National Geographic Society developed the National Geographic GeoBee in 1989 in response to concern about the lack of geographic knowledge among young people in the United States. Over more than three decades, 120 million students have participated in the GeoBee.
