World Geography Bowl
Thursday, April 8, 6:00- 10:00 PM

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. Contestants are selected by regional divisions through a competitive process, which in many divisions includes participation in a regional geography bowl held at the division’s annual meeting. If you are interested in participating, contact your regional division leadership for more information.

For 2021, the World Geography Bowl will be conducted online with in-person, wi-fi enabled rooms for those in Seattle to participate together. The World Geography Bowl is fully staffed by volunteers, who write and edit questions and help run the proceedings as judges, scorekeepers and moderators. Please contact the World Geography Bowl executive director, Dr. Jamison Conley for volunteer opportunities or the AAG Geography Bowl coordinator, Emily Fekete for questions about the bowl or sponsorship opportunities.
Thank you to the 2021 World Geography Bowl sponsors and volunteers.
