School Registration and Resource Center

Sorry, registrations are currently over for this year.

School Bees will be held through February 2, 2018. Each school champion must take the online qualifying test by that date for a chance to qualify for the state Bee.

School champions who qualify for the State Bee will be notified by March 2. State Bees take place in every state, and the District of Columbia, on April 6.

School Bee Coordinators, sign in to your portal to add your champion's information and access the qualifying test.
