									NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC BEE COMPETITION
Each year thousands of schools in the United States participate in the National Geographic Bee using materials
prepared by the National Geographic Society. The contest is designed to encourage teachers to include
geography in their classrooms, spark student interest in the subject, and increase public awareness about
geography. Schools with students in grades four through eight are eligible for this entertaining and challenging test
of geographic knowledge.

Register your school soon for the 2009 National Geographic Bee Competition! To register your school for the
NGBee, Principals may write a letter on school letterhead and enclose the registration fee of U.S. $70 requesting
that their school receive the contest materials. In their letter, principals may designate a teacher in the school to be
the recipient of the contest materials.


Mail* the letter and registration fee (check or money order) to:
