Dear Principal, Bee Coordinator, and Parent/Guardian:
Your student, Bintoro Maeder, from Taos Municipal Charter School has qualified to compete in the state level competition of the National Geographic Bee!
The New Mexico State Bee will be held on Friday, March 31, 2017. Please visit the State Bee Homepage, and click on New Mexico to access your state Bee website and review event information. If you have questions regarding the event, please contact your State Bee Coordinator, whose email address is listed on the New Mexico State Bee website.
Eligible state Bee competitors must be in grades four through eight, and must have participated in and won the competition at the school level that involved at least six students. We reserve the right to disqualify a student at any time if the rules have not been followed.
The National Geographic Bee supports the participation of students with physical disabilities such as vision or hearing impairment. The teacher or parent of a physically disabled student should notify the National Geographic Bee office at NGBee@ngs.org by March 17, so that accommodations can be made.
It is the responsibility of the student’s family and/or teacher-escort to arrange travel to the state Bee, and to report to the registration area on time.
One champion from each state and territory will advance to the National Geographic Bee Championship, which will be held May 14-18 at the National Geographic Society headquarters in Washington, D.C. Transportation and accommodations for the Washington, D.C. trip are provided for each state champion and one parent/guardian.
Many thanks to the School Bee Coordinator for organizing the school Bee. We hope you’ll register Taos Municipal Charter School for next year’s competition. We will notify you when registration opens.
Thank you all for supporting the National Geographic Bee, and best wishes for Bintoro’s success in the New Mexico State Bee.
National Geographic Bee Team
