2023-24 National Civics Bee®


The PA Chamber of Business and Industry is partnering with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation and chambers of commerce across Pennsylvania to host a statewide civics competition. The 2023-24 National Civics Bee® encourages young Americans in 6th, 7th, and 8th grade to engage in civics and contribute to their communities. The competition, modeled on traditional spelling and geography bees, gives students the chance to win recognition and earn cash prizes by sharing ideas for improving their communities and showing their enthusiasm for civics.

The winner of the National Civics Bee® Pennsylvania State Finals will be invited to Washington, DC to compete in the inaugural National Civics Bee® National Championship in Fall 2024. 

The PA Chamber of Business and Industry is hosting the National Civics Bee® Pennsylvania State Finals because they believe that informed and active citizens make for a strong country, a strong economy, and a strong workforce, and that the nation’s continued prosperity depends on the strength of all three. Through the Bee, The Chamber of Business and Industry is promoting greater civic knowledge throughout Pennsylvania and celebrating civic pride.

The Following Chambers are still seeking 6th, 7th, and 8th graders to participate in their regional Bee.  *Registration Extended to February 19th!
