The US National Championships for the 2020 Middle School and Elementary School Divisions of the US Geography Championships will be held at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare in Rosemont, Illinois (next to Chicago) on Friday, June 12, 2020.

OFFICIAL HOTEL POLICY: Staying at an official hotel is required for all students and families coming from outside a 3 hour driving radius per Google Maps.

Official Hotels

1. Hyatt Regency O’Hare – rooms are $149 (king) or $159 (double / double) – Rooms must be booked through a registration link that will shortly be posted here. Note that while our block of rooms is significantly larger than our block last year at Nationals (i.e. in June 2019), we still expect the room block at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare to sell out at least several months in advance. We would then designate additional official hotels, but we strongly recommend you to book as early as possible and stay at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare, as it will certainly be the most convenient option.

Additional official hotels may be posted here in early 2020 if needed.
