Geography Bee


Dear geography enthusiasts,

 

The National Geographic Bee (or “GeoBee”) for all homeschoolers (grades 4 through 8) in the greater Tallahassee area will be held Monday, February 2, 2015 at Saint Paul’s United Methodist Church, at 12 pm.  This is a geography competition, somewhat similar to a spelling bee, though students are not eliminated for missing a question in a round.  Questions relate to a variety of topics about U.S. and world geography.  More information and study resources can be found at the following website:  http://www.nationalgeographic.com/geobee/, particularly http://www.nationalgeographic.com/geobee/study-corner/ .  The winner of this local Bee will be eligible to take a qualifying test to try to reach the state level.  Further details are below:

 

·         Eligibility:  Students must be in grades 4 through 8, and must not have reached their 15th birthday on or before September 1, 2014.  Students enrolled in conventional public or private schools may not compete as part of this Bee.  (And students cannot compete in a separate school’s Bee if they want to compete in this Bee.)  If you live in a surrounding county but consider yourself part of the Tallahassee area homeschooling community, you are welcome.

·         Location and time:  Saint Paul’s United Methodist Church is at 1700 N. Meridian Road (the corner of Tharpe Street and Meridian Road, by Lake Ella).  The Bee will take place in the Parlor (entrance is located by the outdoor basketball court) and we will have signs and send confirming details before the Bee.  Please arrive 15 minutes early so we can get started right at noon.

·         Registration, or questions:  Please email the Bee organizer, Kevin Cox, at kwcox@hotmail.com with the name, grade and address of the registering student(s), or if you have any questions. 

 

Hope you can join us!
