The annual National Geographic Bee returns for the 27th consecutive year. This year, award-winning journalist, speaker, producer and television host Soledad O'Brien will serve as host and moderator. The 2015 National Geographic Bee will feature fourth- to eighth-graders vying for the Bee crown and the top prize of a $50,000 college scholarship and lifetime membership in the National Geographic Society. Second and third prizes are college scholarships of $15,000 and $10,000. The finalists, all winners of their state-level geographic bees, have triumphed over a field of nearly 4 million students to earn a place in the national championships. They represent the 50 states, District of Columbia, Atlantic Territories, Pacific Territories and Department of Defense Dependents Schools.
