Welcome to the World Geography Bowl!

competition

Welcome to the official website of the World Geography Bowl!  In the months ahead, this website will evolve into a comprehensive source for all of your WGB-related informational needs.

The World Geography Bowl is a quiz bowl tournament held annually at the Annual Meeting of the AAG, featuring teams of graduate and undergraduate geography students representing each of the AAG’s regional divisions.  Each participant in the World Geography Bowl receives a travel stipend, co-sponsored by the AAG and that student’s regional division, greatly offsetting expenses for attendance at the national meeting.  To learn more about the WGB, visit our About page.

Without the generous efforts of volunteers, the World Geography Bowl would not be possible.  If you’re interested in volunteering as a question writer, editor, judge, scorekeeper, or timekeeper for the national competition, please visit the Get Involved page.
