Challenge Your Students


The GeoChallenge is a standards-based competition that encourages student groups in grades five through eight to develop a creative solution to a real-world problem. Teams respond to a problem, challenge, or critical issue by using research, collaboration, creativity, and communication to create and present real-world solutions. The best projects have the chance to move on to a regional competition.

Reward Student Curiosity about the World


The National Geographic GeoBee is an annual competition based on geographic knowledge for public schools, private schools, homeschools in the United States and its territories, and Department of Defense Dependents Schools (DoDDS) around the world.

Student Matinees

National Geographic Explorers, photographers, filmmakers, and scientists embody the importance of living curious, responsible, and empowered lives. We’re proud to introduce these inspiring role models through our student matinee programs. Matinee presentations are approximately one hour and include a short question-and-answer session with the speaker. They occur in venues throughout the U.S. and some international locations.
