Posted by on
Friday, November 18, is the final day to sign up to participate in the Geography Bee.
This year’s bee is scheduled for Friday, December 2, at Grace Church of NWA in Fayetteville, starting at 3 p.m.
Students in grades 4 – 8 are eligible, as long as they did not reach age 15 on or before Sept. 1, 2011. Competitors will answer oral questions in a bee format; the winner will then take a written test to qualify for the state bee. Students with the top 100 scores statewide will be invited to participate in the Arkansas bee. The winner of that bee will go on to represent Arkansas at the national bee in Washington, D.C.
More information about the bee, as well as study helps, can be found at the National Geographic website.
NWACHEA members may register for the bee at no cost. There is a $5 entry fee for non-members. Please contact Beth Gildner to register for the bee.
