Students from Perdido School participated in the school competition of the National Geographic GeoBee Friday January 31.
Kam Drinkard, a seventh-grade student, won first place, with Emma Etheridge, a fourth-grade student winning second place.
The school competition is the first round in the annual National Geographic GeoBee, a geography competition designed to inspire and reward students’ curiosity about the world. Questions cover not only geography, but also ancient and world civilizations, cultures, and physical features.
School champions, including Kam, will take an online qualifying test; up to 100 of the top test scores in each state then become eligible to compete in their State GeoBee.
