Camden McDonald, an eighth-grade student at Spanish Fork Jr. High, won the school-level competition of the National Geographic Bee on December 11, 2015 and a chance at a $50,000 college scholarship.
The school-level Bee was the first round in the 28th annual National Geographic Bee. In order to participate in the Bee, eighth graders had to pass a written test with a high qualifying score. During the bee itself, qualifying students answered questions orally on geography.
There were only 35 seats available for the entire eighth grade so being able to participate is an accomplishment in and of itself. The following students qualified and participated in the school competition:
Camden McDonald finished the competition in First Place with Clayton Hall finishing in Second Place and Amanda Lewis finishing in Third Place. Congratulations to our school finalists!
School winners around the country, including Camden, will now take a written test to be eligible to compete in the state Geographic Bee on April 1, 2016. State winners will receive an all-expenses-paid trip to Washington D.C. to participate in the National Geographic Bee and a chance for a $50,000 scholarship.
