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 2024, 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. The top 3 students from each Colorado local competition will advance to the National Civics Bee® Colorado State Finals which will be held on May 17, 2024 in Denver.  The National Civics Bee® Colorado State Champion will advance to the National Civics Bee® competition in Washington, D.C. on November 12, 2024 to compete for the National title as well as over $50,000 in prizes.
