Calling All Middle School Students!  

Share your ideas and flex your civics knowledge in the National Civics Bee.

About the Bee

The Oklahoma State Chamber is partnering with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation and three chambers of commerce across Oklahoma to host a first-of-its-kind statewide civics competition. The 2023-24 National Civics Bee encourages young 6th, 7th, and 8th-grade Americans to engage in civics and contribute to their communities. 

The competition, modeled on traditional spelling and geography bees, allows students to win recognition and earn cash prizes by sharing ideas for improving their communities and showing their enthusiasm for civics. The National Civics Bee Oklahoma State Finals winner will be invited to Washington, DC, to compete in the inaugural National Civics Bee national championship in Fall 2024.  

Why Civics?

We are hosting the National Civics Bee Oklahoma State Finals because we believe that informed and active citizens make for a strong country, economy, and workforce and that our continued prosperity depends on the strength of all three. Through the Bee, we promote greater civic knowledge throughout Oklahoma and celebrate our civic pride. 

State Finals – August 21, 2024
