2023 Colorado Civics Bee

Address: 101 Lawrence Way, Denver, 80204

Fees/Admission: Complimentary Event

The National Civics Bee is an annual competition that encourages young Americans to engage in civics and contribute to their communities. Participating middle school students will flex their civics knowledge for a chance to win recognition and cash prizes. The National Civics Bee takes place in early 2023, in partnership with local and state chambers of commerce across the United States, including the Colorado Chamber of Commerce.

In the first round of the contest, local 6th, 7th and 8th grade students will participate in an essay competition. Judges will then select 20 finalists to participate in the local competition: a live quiz event testing civics knowledge. Then, the top 3 students from each Colorado local competition will advance to the Colorado state competition which will be held on May 19, 2023 in Denver.

The National Civics Bee is presented by the Colorado Chamber of Commerce, with support from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation and the Daniels Fund.
