New York Geographic Bee 2014 - Welcome to Albany!

September 03, 2013
Timothy McDonnell


The National Geographic Bee 2014 will be held on Friday April 4, 2013 at the New York State Museum in Albany, NY. As always, members of the New York Geographic Alliance will be helping out as moderators, time-keepers, scorers, etc. We believe it is our mission to help geographic education in any way possible. We have a new state coodinator this year, Lisbeth Uribe. She is already hard at work preparing for the Bee. Several members of the New York Geographic Alliance will be assisting her at the state bee. Tim McDonnell, the NYGA Coordinator, will be the moderator for the Final Round. . Students across the state have already taken part in local geographic bees. On the state level, only 100 students across New York will be invited to Albany. The winner of that event will represent our state at the Nationals in Washington, DC in May 2014.

Lisbeth Uribe is requesting your help. If you are willing to be a moderator for the New York State Bee. This means you will read the questions to the students in the preliminary round. If you like middle school students, and you are geo-literate, please let Lisbeth know. Her email is lisbethwu@gmail.com We may also need help with keeping score and registering the contestants.

The final round of the competition is open to the public. Come join us as our students show off their knowledge of geography! It is a very impressive event. While you are there, visit the New York Geographic Alliance table. We have freebies!
