On Thursday, January 9th, 2020, the Lower School conducted the final round of the National Geographic GeoBee. Each year thousands of schools in the United States participate in the National Geographic GeoBee using materials prepared by the National Geographic Society. The contest motivates students to learn about the world and how it works. Students in grades 4-8 are eligible for this entertaining and challenging competition. With cash prizes and scholarships available at the state and national levels, the contest is designed to encourage teachers to include geography in their classrooms, spark student interest in the subject, and increase public awareness about geography.
