A Pelion Middle School student will test his knowledge of the globe at a state competition this spring.
Hunter J. Rowe qualified to represent his school at the South Carolina State Bee, part of the National Geographic Bee competition, on April 6. His scores at the school and regional levels earned him a spot in the state bee.
Open to students in grades 4–8 and organized by the National Geographic Society, the National Geographic Bee encourages students to explore the world around them. Nationwide, more than 10,000 schools compete annually.
A champion from each state will advance to the National Geographic Bee Championship, held May 20–23 at the National Geographic Society headquarters in Washington, D.C.
