National Geographic Bee State Finals on Friday

State Level competitions for the National Geographic Bee will be held on March 31.

Winners will go on to compete nationwide this year from May 23-24 in Washington DC.
Awards on the National Level are scholarships ranging from $10,000 to $25,000.

Students and homeschoolers from grades 4-8 are eligible to enter, with some qualifying rounds.
The annual registration deadline is October 15.

There is also a World Championship held every two years.
In Summer 2005, the event was held in Budapest, Hungary, with Alex Trebek moderating.
