Homeschool group plans Geography Bee

BATH — The Midcoast Maine Homeschool Center is sponsoring an official school level National Geographic Bee for homeschoolers who would be in grades 4 to 8.

In order for this to “count” as an official bee, there needs to be at least six participants.

Participation certificates from National Geographic will be provided to all participants, and the winner will have the opportunity to take a pencil-and-paper qualifying test to participate in the state contest on March 30.

The bee will be held at Midcoast Maine Homeschool Center, Grace Episcopal Church, 1100 Washington St., at 10 a.m. on Jan. 6. The snow date is Jan. 9.

Those planning to compete should contact Bee Master Ken Walden at kenhww@meadowdance.org in advance.

For more information, contact MMHC Director Susan Hyde at 837-9508.
