Local students place in GeoBee competition

Print Article

BONNERS FERRY — On Jan. 17, Boundary County students participated in the National Geographic GeoBee.

The GeoBee was developed in 1989 after concerns arose about students’ knowledge of world geography. The questions not only cover geography, but cultures, physical features, history and earth science.

The first round to the competition is held at the school level, followed by the state level, then the national level. Each tier has different prize incentives, with the grand prize at the national level being cash prizes, scholarships, and an all expense paid Lindblad expedition to the Galapagos Islands aboard the National Geographic Endeavour II.

The first place winner was eighth grader, Roger Naylor, who will take an online qualifying test to become eligible for the State GeoBee.

The second place winner was eighth grader, Henry Willis, and the third place winner was seventh grader, Kaelynn Baisden.
