Two Pelion Middle students generated quite the buzz with their scores in the school’s National Geographic Bee competition.
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.
In December, students at PMS took the initial test to determine eligibility for the state competition. Noah D. Holland and Hunter J. Rowe made it to the final round with their scores, with Rowe earning the highest score for PMS this year.
Rowe will compete once more to see if he qualifies for the state-level National Geographic Bee competition, held on April 6, 2018.
