South Grove Student Wins Geo Bee

Moves One Step Closer to $50,000 College Scholarship

Daniel Chan, a fifth grader at South Grove Elementary School recently won the school-level competition of the National Geographic Bee.  The school-level Bee, at which students answered oral questions on geography, was the first round in the annual National Geographic Bee. As South Grove’s school-level champion, Daniel will take an on-line test; up to 100 of the top scorers on that test in each state will then be eligible to compete in their state Bee.

Congratulations to Daniel, as well as first runner-up Timothy Chan (last year’s school champion) and third-place winner Russell Erfan. The three are pictured. All of South Grove’s Geo Bee participants are pictured separately.

State Geo Bee winners advance to the national competition, with a chance at the grand prize $50,000 college scholarship, or second- and third-place awards of $25,000 and $10,000, respectively.
