Georgia College hosted the state-level portion of the National Geographic Bee Friday featuring nearly 100 young geography whizzes from across Georgia.
The fourth- to eighth-graders had to answer eight questions correctly during the preliminary round in order to advance to the final round as one of the top 10.
The state winner received $100, “The Complete National Geographic” on DVD, and an all-expenses-paid trip to the national finals in Washington, D.C. in May moderated by Jeopardy! quizmaster Alex Trebek for a chance to be crowned the 25th National Geographic Bee champion.
Georgia College has hosted the state-level competition for about 12 years.
