The time-honored geography contest GeoBee is now history. National Geographic, which has sponsored the event for more than three decades, has decided to "permanently discontinue" the bee, citing issues about equitable participation. According to the outlet's website, the National Geographic Society decided to cancel the contest after 33 years "to make way for new, transformative, and innovative geography education opportunities in which students around the globe can more equitably participate." It is unclear when the official decision was made.
