Second Annual National Geographic Geography Bee 


The National Geographic Geography Bee is open nationally to students in 4th and 5th grades. This year’s National Geography Geography Bee will include all 4th and 5th graders at Potomac Elementary. The first half of the preliminary rounds will be held on January 7th during their reading and language arts classes.

After competitors are narrowed down to the top six winners in each class, the top four from each class will advance to the School Finals (24 total participants). The School Finals will be held on the evening of January 22nd.  Alternates will be allowed to compete in the final if one of the top four class competitors is unable to compete, and these alternates should continue to prepare.
