Fox 21: Nat’l Civics Bee semi-finalists compete at Broadmoor

El Paso County participated for the first time this year in the National Civics Bee, sponsored by the Daniels Fund and the United States Chamber of Commerce. The Colorado State Semi-Finals were held at The International Center at The Broadmoor Hotel on Saturday, Mar. 16, 2024.

What’s a civics bee? It’s like a spelling bee, but instead of quizzing kids on spelling, it asks questions about civics. Twenty finalists competed on Mar. 16, after being selected based on essays they wrote. The winner of today’s bee receives $500. The top three contestants from the Mar. 16 civics bee will go to Denver to participate in the Colorado State Finals on Sunday, Mar. 17, 2024.
