The 2018 US Geography Olympiad National Championships for the Middle School and Elementary Divisions will take place in May or June 2018 in conjunction with the 2018 US Academic Bee and Bowl National Championships and the National History Bee and Bowl Middle School and Elementary National Championships.

Registration will cost $80 per student and will open in fall 2017.

All participants in the 2018 Middle School and Elementary Division National Championships from over a roughly 2 hour drive from the host hotel will be required to stay there!

Note also that all competing students in IGB at Middle School and Elementary Division Nationals are also welcome to compete in the US Academic Bee, National Science Bee, National Humanities Bee, and the National Academic Battery Exam held that same weekend! Full information on all these events is available at

Registration will run until about two weeks before the competition. Please ensure that registration fees for USGO are paid for separately from US Academic Bee and Bowl / National Science Bee / National Humanities Bee / National Academic Battery Exam fees, though they can be combined on the same check with any fees for the US National Championships of the International Geography Bee. USGO fees should be paid by check payable to “US Geography Olympiad” and sent to:

NHBB/USGO Nationals
PO Box 875
Tenafly, NJ 07670

Be sure to indicate which student(s) you are paying for and which school they attend / homeschool affiliation (if any) they have when you send in your registration fees!
