Blue Hill Public Library
Blue Hill Public Library will be hosting the annual National Geographic Bee for 4th to 8th grade homeschoolers on Friday January 18th, 10:30 AM to 12:30 PM. Every year thousands of schools across the country participate in the event, which is sponsored by the National Geographic Society. The contest is intended to increase public awareness and student interest in geography and to encourage teachers to include the subject in school curricula. The library’s event is free but registration is required. Contestants can register at www.bhpl.net or by calling 207-374-5515.
The winner of the bee will advance to the next level of competition, a written examination that will determine who will compete at the state level. For sample questions and tips on preparing for the bee, check the National Geographic Society’s web site, https://www.nationalgeographic.org/bee. For more information call Claire at 374-5515.
