The Shelby Kennedy Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to encouraging the spiritual growth of the entire family through Bible study, Scripture memorization, and prayer, launched the National Bible Bee in 2009. The competition challenges youth ages 7 to 18 years in Bible knowledge and memorization first at local contests held around the country at the end of August, and then at a national competition held in November for the top 300 contestants from across the nation. The winners of the National Bible Bee Competition will be awarded $260,000 in cash prizes, as well as other awards. In addition to the exciting competition, national contestants and their families will enjoy a variety of family activity rooms, musical performances, guest speakers, a vendor hall, and a formal banquet.
