NE Geo Bee 2023

Northeast Students Participated in Annual Geography Bee

Dr. Somerville Announces at the Geo Bee

On Saturday, May 6th, 2023, Northeast held its 19th Annual Geography Bee. The Northeast Geography Bee (GeoBee) is one of the most anticipated events of the Northeast calendar.  Similar to a spelling bee, the GeoBee is an opportunity for our students to showcase their knowledge of geography – in a fun and inclusive setting where all can and will feel a level of success! It is the signature event that celebrates our school’s magnet of Global Studies.


Students Hold Up Answer Cards

The goal of the Bee is to get Northeast students, from Kindergarten through 5th grade and their families, excited about geography and the world around us. In the months leading up to the Bee, students form teams of three and meet regularly to practice. Areas of study include geography terms, state capitals, general world geographical knowledge, manmade and natural landmarks and more. Each team is led by a parent captain.
