Geography Bee

 

The National Geographic Society sponsors the National Geography Bee every year for students in grades 4 - 8.  The purpose of the nationwide competition is encourage the teaching and study of geography. At Thomas Jefferson the first step in the Geography Bee is a paper and pencil test for students in grades 4 - 8.  The highest scoring students in each class move on to a regular Bee in the Library. The winner of this event then takes a 100 question multiple-choice test.  If this student has one of the 100 highest scores in Missouri, he or she will move on to the state competition at the University of Missouri Columbia.  The winner of that competition goes to the National Competition in Washington, D.C.  Students at TJ participate in the Geography Bee annually.
