The 2017 US Geography Olympiad National Championships for the Varsity and Junior Varsity divisions will take place on Friday, April 21, 2017 in Arlington, VA at the Crystal Gateway Marriott.

Registration costs $75 per student.

Please register by using the new US Geography Olympiad / International Geography Bee Varsity and Junior Varsity Nationals Registration Form available at the link here if you have qualified.

Hotel booking instructions are available here on the homepage of the National History Bee and Bowl (the NHBB Nationals are taking place at the hotel that weekend, though at different times). When making your hotel booking, please say that you are booking with the National History Bee and Bowl even if you are coming just for geography, so you can receive the group rate, and your room nights are credited to our group!

Registration will run through 11:59pm EDT on Wednesday, April 12. Please ensure that registration fees for USGO are paid for separately from National History Bee and Bowl/US History Bee/Sports and Entertainment Bee 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!
