Hotel bookings at the official host hotel (the Crystal Gateway Marriott in Arlington, VA) are done this year solely by clicking here to access the online hotel booking site. Please do not worry if this only says “National History Bee and Bowl” on the hotel booking site – students coming just for the US Geography Olympiad (or any other events being held at the hotel that weekend) should use this online hotel booking site too.

Please do not call the hotel or Marriott reservations to make bookings! The rate is $145 a night plus tax. Further details on the Nationals hotel can be found by clicking here to access the Nationals information page on the website of the National History Bee and Bowl.

Update: Registration will run through 11:59pm on Wednesday, April 17. Please ensure that registration fees for USGO are paid for separately from National History Bee and Bowl/US History Bee/Sports and Entertainment Bee fees, though they can be combined on the same check with any fees for the US National Championships of the International Geography Bee. USGO and IGB fees should be paid by check payable to “US Geography Olympiad” and sent to:
