WPS 8th grader among top 100 in state; hopes to qualify for May 22-25 Nationals in Washington, D.C.
Congratulations Wahoo Middle School 8th grader Alex Tomjack for qualifying to compete in the state level competition of the National Geographic Bee!
According to the National Geographic website, "each year thousands of schools in the United States participate in the National Geographic Bee using materials prepared by the National Geographic Society. The contest is designed to inspire students to be curious about the world. Schools with students in grades four through eight are eligible for this entertaining and challenging competition."
Tomjack recently won the local Geography Bee, and then took a qualifying test in an attempt to qualify for the State Bee. As a state qualifier, Tomjack is among the topp 100 scorers from across Nebraska!
The Nebraska State Bee will be held on Friday, April 1, 2016 in the Strauss Performing Arts Center on the campus of the University of Nebraska at Omaha.
One champion from each state and territory will advance to the national competition, which will be held May 22-25 at the National Geographic Society headquarters in Washinton, D.C. Transportation and accommodations for the Washington, D.C. trip are provided for each state champion.
WMS has had four state qualifiers in the past 12 years, but none have yet advanced to the national level. This could be the year!
Good luck at State Alex!
