EPIC is excited to once again be participating in the National Geographic GeoBee for students in grades 4-8.
The school-wide competition is open to all actively enrolled EPIC students who are interested in participating.
This is a great opportunity for students to test their knowledge about maps, other countries, cultures, geography and more! The winner of the school-wide GeoBee will have the opportunity to compete in the statewide competition. The winner of the statewide competition will win a trip to Washington, D.C. to compete in the National GeoBee for the chance to win a $50,000 college scholarship.
We do ask that you please register in advance so that we will know how many students to prepare for.

The National Geographic GeoBee is an annual competition designed to inspire and reward students’ curiosity about the world. Registered schools receive 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 home schools in the United States and its territories, as well as the Department of Defense Dependents Schools (DoDDS).
The National Geographic GeoBee includes three levels of competition; school, state, and national.
Schools conduct a GeoBee and name a school champion. The school champion takes a proctored online qualifying test and the top-100-ranked students in each state qualify to represent their school at the State GeoBee competition. State champions are then invited to compete in the national championship.
