According to the Royal Geography Society, "Geography is the study of the earth’s landscapes, peoples, places and environments. It is, quite simply, about the world in which we live."

Since 1987, Geography Awareness Week has been celebrated in the United States every third week in November.

This year, we've decided to join the party and offer a quiz about Missouri geography that just might teach you something you can use to stump your friends. Know your cities and elevations around the Show-Me State? Let's find out.

Answering each question and clicking "next" will show you a correct answer and then allow you to proceed to the next question. If you can't see the quiz embedded below, click here to take it at
