The National Geographic GeoBee is an annual competition designed to inspire and reward students’ curiosity about the world. Students in grades four through eight from nearly 10,000 schools across the United States competed in the 2019 National Geographic GeoBee for a chance to win college scholarships and the glory of being the National Geographic GeoBee Champion. Bees are held in all 50 states, the District, and for the territories and defense schools.
I had the privilege of serving as the Coordinator for the 2019 DC State GeoBee acting as the Master of Ceremonies at the National Geographic headquarters.
Congrats to all the students who studied so hard to get here, the parents and guardians who supported them along the way and teachers who encouraged them to pursue their interest in geography to continue to discover more about our planet and motivate others to respect and protect it.
