A Kodiak seventh-grader will represent Alaska in the National Geographic Bee next month in Washington, D.C.
Thirteen-year-old Gray Harver won the Alaska Geographic Bee Friday at the Egan Center in Anchorage. Nearly 100 fourth- through eighth-graders competed for the title and the opportunity of representing Alaska in the national bee.
In a statement, Gray said he was a little nervous in the final round, but said he was looking forward to going to the Nation’s capital.
To qualify for the state bee, students had to take first place in their school bees and pass qualifying exams. Friday’s competition included 41 girls and 59 boys.
