Chloe a seventh grade student at Thomas Jefferson Middle School, won the school-level competition of the National Geographic Bee and moves one step closer to a chance at a $50,000 college scholarship. The school-level Bee, at which over 500 students participated, was the first round in the 29th annual National Geographic Bee. The Bee is sponsored by the National Geographic Society. Chloe will soon take a qualifying test. We will wait and see if Chloe will move on to the next round, the State Bee. Only the top 100 scorers in the state of New Jersey will qualify.
