Thetford Geography Bee: Nov. 3

The 6th Annual Thetford Geography Bee is coming up on Friday, Nov. 3, at Thetford Academy.  If you’re unfamiliar, the Geography Bee is a series of multiple choice questions typically crafted around a topic.  This year’s theme is “Vermont Critters.”  How well do YOU know your wildlife?

There are two divisions—Youth (Grades 5-8) and Adult (Grade 9 and up).  Each division alternates answering questions, correct answers are tallied, and the winning teams receive great prizes.  It’s loads of fun, and as in past years, proceeds are earmarked for the Historical Society’s Hughes Barn Museum. (This year is especially important, as the Museum’s buildings and much of the collection were damaged in the flooding event of July 1. We are still working on reconstruction and cleanup.)

Information and registration forms are available here.  Adult teams are $30; Youth teams play for free!
