The National Geographic GeoBee is an annual competition designed to inspire and reward students' curiosity about the world. Registered schools received a suite of curated study resources to prepare students and 400+ GeoBee questions covering geography, civilizations, cultures, physical features, and more to hold a school GeoBee. The academic competition is open to students in grades four through eight, in public schools, private schools, and homeschools in the United States and its territories, as well as the Department of Defense Dependents Schools (DoDDS).
