National Geographic Geography Bee

The registration deadline for the 2006 Bee is October 15, 2005. Homeschooled students can participate (Heads of homeschool groups may register to receive contest materials to arrange a Bee for their homeschool members. There is a $50 fee per group, and the group must have at least six participating eligible students --see the website's FAQ section for more info.) "Each year thousands of schools in the United States participate in the National Geographic Bee using materials prepared by the National Geographic Society. The contest is designed to encourage teachers to include geography in their classrooms, spark student interest in the subject, and increase public awareness about geography. Schools with students in grades four through eight are eligible for this entertaining and challenging test of geographic knowledge." State-level Bees will be held march 31, 2006, and the National Bee will held in Washington, DC on May 23 and 24, 2006. For additional details, see the website.
