If your children can answer these questions correctly, you might want to consider entering them in the National Bible Bee.
They could join more than 14,000 other children who have registered for the contest this fall. The competition will begin with local contests in communities nationwide Sept. 12. The top 100 finalists from three different age groups will advance to the national contest in Washington, D.C., Nov. 5 to 6.
According to the National Bible Bee Web site, www.biblebee.org, this Bible memory competition for children and teens is similar to a spelling bee, except contestants are required to recite Bible passages and Bible facts rather than spell words.
