From our Annunciation Bee, there will be one school champion who will have a chance to compete for a place in the state competition by taking a written, multiple-choice Qualifying test.  As many as one hundred of the highest-scoring students in the state will advance to state level.  The first-place winner from the state Bee advances to the national level, with an all expenses paid trip to Washington, D.C., for the “National Geographic Bee.”

The National Bee winner receives a $50,000 scholarship, a lifetime subscription to National Geographic magazine, a trip, and $500 cash. The 2nd place winner receives a $25,000 scholarship and $500 cash. The third place winner receives a $10,000 scholarship and $500 cash. The 4th -10th place winners receive $500 cash each.
