For the 22nd year, the National Geographic Society conducted the National Geographic Bee nationwide contest.

The event is designed to encourage the teaching and study of geography. There are three levels of competition: school, state, and national.

The school-level Bee at North Clay Middle School was won by Pierce Ross, and second place was Aimy Nguyen, both 7th-grade students.

Ross will advance to the next level of competition, a written examination to determine state competitors.

All school winners are eligible to win the national championship and its first prize, a $25,000 college scholarship, at the national competition May 25-26, in Washington, D.C.
