We regret to share that the CALIFORNIA and NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC BEES HAVE BEEN DISCONTINUED. Congratulations to Sean Boyd at Fresno State University for his years of leadership in coordinating the state bee. See more information from National Geographic HERE.
A group of past GeoBee competitors has developed their own programs to promote geographic learning and have organized a virtual bee. Learn more at GEOGENIUS.ORG.
In 2019, Jishnu Nayak of Peter Hansen Elementary School in Mountain House made it to the top 10 nationally, and in 2018 California’s Venkat Ranjan (Windemere Ranch Middle School, San Ramon) took top honors. You can hear an interview with Venkat from NPR’s Here and Now program here.
