Drill of Geography UN Exam Pack 1

Geography Bees are performed locally school by school, but there are also regional, state, and national competitions. The National Geographic Bee, previously the National Geography Bee, is open to fourth through eighth grade American students. The annual Bee is hosted by Alex Trebek and has students from all 50 states, Puerto Rico, US Virgin Islands and Pacific territories, as well as Department of Defense Dependents Schools.

To get to the national bee is no easy feet. School level competitions begin in November. There is no limit on the number of competitors, though there is a minimum of 6 participants required to host an event. The Bee begins with preliminaries, where competitors are split into groups of twenty. Each is asked one question from 7 categories. Each question is worth 1 point, and the top scorers advance to the second round.
The second part of competition has two parts - a final and championship round. The 10 finalists are cleared of previous points, and are eliminated after two incorrect answers. Once the third place winner is decided, the two semi-finalists go head to head. Third place eliminations don't happen until all students have voiced an answer, because if all players are incorrect no one is eliminated.
The championship round is played between the two semi-finalists. Before the question is asked, points are cleared once more. Participants have 15 seconds to write down their answers. To qualify for state competition, all school-level winners take a written test. The top 100 qualify for the state bee, which follows the same rules as the local bees. National competitors are the winners from state and territory bees. Other than an increase in preliminary questions from 7 to 9, rules are identical.
