A local geography whiz is heading to Washington D.C. this week. Thirteen-year-old Gray Harver will represent Alaska in the National Geographic Bee after winning the state competition last month.
Harver beat out nearly 100 fourth-through-eight-graders to earn his spot in the D.C. competition. In order to make it to the state competition he needed to place first in his school competition and pass the necessary qualifying exams.
KMXT’s Brianna Gibbs caught up with Harver this week and asked him about the national geo bee, which will feature students from all 50 states and some territories.
