If you live in Latin America, the Caribbean, Africa, Oceania (excluding New Zealand), or any oceanic island over 200 kilometers from a continental mainland that is not a state or dependency of the USA, and would like to have a chance to qualify for the International Geography Bee’s 2020 World Championships, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org For students in these regions, it is possible to take the IGB World Championships Qualifying Exam at their school with a teacher or administrator proctoring the Exam. This option is free of charge. Students must score above at least a 75 out of 100 to qualify, or otherwise, finish with at least a score of 50 and be the highest scorer from within their country or territory as of 1 August, 2019. The IGB World Championships Qualifying Exam is similar in style, content, rules, and difficulty to the Qualifying Exam used to qualify students for the IGB’s Asian or European Championships. A general sample version of the World Championships Qualifying Exam is available here along with its answer key; a version specific to Africa is posted below (students in Africa would take an exam of this sort with proportionally more questions on African geography). Two versions of the Qualifying Exam exist. Students must obtain a passing score on either.
