Eighth-Grader Wins Middle School Geo Bee
After a close competition, eighth-grader Rishabh Jain won the Middle School Geography Bee held January 9. Rishabh will take a test administered by the National Geographic Society to see if he qualifies to participate in the State Geo Bee held later this spring.
Fifth-grader Aidan B. earned 2nd place and eighth-grader Michael Wu came in 3rd. Finalists include eighth-grader Tyler Hart and seventh-graders Tanay Iyengar, Aman Patel, and Andrejs Smith.
Students who compete in the State Competition will be in the running to receive a top prize of $1,000 and a trip to Washington, D.C., to participate in the National Championship.
The contest, prepared by the National Geographic Society, is designed to encourage teachers to include geography in their classrooms, inspire and reward students' curiosity about the world, and increase public awareness about geography.
