FAQ

Q: Who is eligible to compete in FGE Competitions?
A: Members in good standing of state-affiliated FGE chapters are eligible to compete in FGE competitions. Exception: Knowledge Bowl is open to all high schools.

Q:  Which FGE Day should I/we attend?
A:  You are free to attend any and all FGE Days. Your school’s location does not dictate which event(s) you attend.

Q:  How many entries can we submit per competition?
A:  A chapter may submit only one entry per competition. For individual competitions, chapters may wish to hold a local competition to determine who will enter the FGE Day competition.

Q:  Can an FGE chapter enter competitions at multiple FGE Days?
A:  Yes, a chapter may enter competitions at as many FGE Days as they attend (except the Knowledge Bowl; see note below) . However, they are limited to one entry per competition at each location.

Please note: the only exception to this is that a chapter may enter the FGE Knowledge Bowl only at the first FGE Day they attend in an academic year. Because some questions may be repeated at multiple events, chapters who have already attended an FGE Day may have heard the questions and are therefore not eligible to compete.

Q:  When is the competition entry deadline?
A:  Deadline to enter competitions is midnight on the registration deadline of the FGE Day you plan to attend.

Q: Will there be a state level competition?
A: Yes. First, second and third place competition winners of each Knowledge Bowl competition will be eligible to compete at state. In addition, one FGE Moment from will be selected to be read at state competition. There will also be additional competitions at state that students may choose to compete in. More details to be released later.
