The results are in! The National Geographic Society has named Chase Young, Cloverleaf Middle School 8th-grader, as one of the semifinalists eligible to compete in the 2020 National Geographic GeoBee State Competition. The contest will be held at the Ohio History Center in Columbus on Friday, March 27, 2020.
This is the second level of the National Geographic GeoBee competition. To determine each school champion, GeoBee competitions were held in schools throughout the state with students in the fourth through eighth grades. This year an estimated 2.4 million students competed in the GeoBee, with 8,661 students becoming school champions. School champions also took an online qualifying test, which they submitted to the National Geographic Society. Up to 100 of the top-scoring students in each of the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Department of Defense Dependents Schools and U.S. territories were invited to compete in the State GeoBees.
Good luck Chase!
