Each year thousands of schools in the US participate in the National Geographic Bee. This exciting and highly competitive contest encourages teachers to include geography in their classrooms, sparks students’ curiosity about our world and increases public interest in geography. The Bee culminates in an entertaining, dramatic, and extremely challenging test of knowledge between stellar students who have made it over the hurdles to appear at the national level. This year—marked by the Bee’s 25th anniversary and Alex Trebek’s last year as host—the event will take place at historic National Theatre in downtown Washington, DC.

Tickets available only through the National Geographic Ticket Office.
