Now is your chance to show your geography chops and flex those cartography muscles! We are holding a geography bee in our Community Room where everyone has a chance to compete!

All attendees who are interested in competing are invited to put their name in a hat. Twenty-five competitors will then be selected at random to participate in a 7-round geography bee! And if you're not interested in competing, spectators are welcome to attend as well.

Here are some sample questions (feel free to put your answers in the comments):

1. Which state is knows as the Mountain State because it is covered almost entirely by the Appalachian Mountains - West Virginia or Colorado?

2. To visit the home and museum of the famous painter Rubens and to walk through the world's largest diamond district in Antwerp, you would travel to what country?

All ages are welcome to attend and compete. Three time state geography bee champion Michael Borecki and his coach Barbara Ivey will judge the competition. The bee will be followed by a Q&A session with Michael and Barbara.

The winner will receive a one-year subscription to National Geographic Magazine and $100!
