And then there were ten—ten finalists, that is, culled from the more than fifty who proudly represented their states, territories or Department of Defense schools in the nation’s premiere geography competition. And now it’s time to crown a champion.
Looking for something fun and educational to watch on TV this week? Tune-in as the 10 finalists assemble in Washington, DC for the last round of the 2015 National Geographic Bee, moderated by journalist Soledad O’Brien.
It premieres tonight, May 15, at 8pm on National Geographic Channel (DIRECTV channel 276), and will be repeated Wednesday, May 20, at 7 p.m. ET/PT on Nat Geo WILD.
The program is also being carried by PBS. Check local listings.
The annual NatGeo Bee is open to students in grades 4-8. Do you know any young people who have what it takes to enter next year’s competition? Check out the early bird registration process.
