St. Luke 7th grader to compete in Washington State National Geographic State Bee on Friday

Thursday, March 26, 2015

A St. Luke School 7th Grader, Aidan Trainor, son of Eleanor and Patrick Trainor, is headed to the semifinals of the Washington State National Geographic State Bee on Friday, March 27 at Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma.

The State finalist from this round will head to Washington, D.C. in May for the final contest. The National Geographic Bee is sponsored by Google and Plum Creek.

This is the second level of the National Geographic Bee competition, which is now in its 27th year. 

School Bees were held in schools with fourth- through eighth-grade students throughout the state to determine each school champion. School champions then took a qualifying test, which they submitted to the National Geographic Society. The National Geographic Society has invited up to 100 of the top-scoring students in each of the 50 states, District of Columbia, Department of Defense Dependents Schools and U.S. territories to compete in the state Bees.

Each state champion will receive $100, the “National Geographic Atlas of the World, 10th Edition,” a medal, and a trip to Washington, D.C., to represent their state in the National Geographic Bee.
