How do we do it? 4th-8th grade students participate in a qualify round of GEO Bee in their general education classroom. The top qualifiers will receive an invitation to participate in the final school round. The winner will then take a Written Qualifying Test that will be submitted to National Geo Bee Headquarters. The top 100 Colorado finalists will be invited to participate at the state level.
When can I start? Classroom Geography Bee will begin in mid-September to late-October. School Geography Bee will occur in mid-to-late January. If a student qualifies for State, the competition date will be Friday, March 27.
Program Fee: There are no program fees associated with this program. Travel expenses may occur if student qualifies for State.
Volunteers Needed: Parent volunteers may be needed at classroom or school level competitions. Anyone willing to volunteer should contact the school.
