What in the world do you know about our planet’s geography? On Sunday, May 17, at 4:30 p.m., see if you can match the knowledge of the nation’s best and brightest fourth through eighth graders as they compete in the National Geographic Bee. Sojas Wagle, who attends Springdale’s Southwest Junior High, will represent Arkansas in the competition.
The National Geographic Bee is a contest designed to inspire students to be curious about the world. Schools with students in grades four through eight are eligible for the entertaining and challenging competition, and each year thousands of schools in the United States participate in the competition.
Winners from school bees compete in the state level competition portion of the National Geographic Bee in every state and the District of Columbia. Then, the 51 state champs, as well as champions from the United States Territories and Department of Defense school, compete in the national championship at National Geographic headquarters in Washington D.C.
