Eighth-grader wins Kenwood geography bee

Brock Schueck, an eighth-grade student at Kenwood Trail Middle School, won the school-level competition of the National Geographic Bee on Jan. 14 and a chance at a $25,000 college scholarship.

The school-level bee, at which students answered oral questions on geography, was the first round in the 25th annual National Geographic Bee sponsored by Google.

As a school winner, Schueck will now take a written test. The top scorers will be eligible to compete in the state bee April 5.

The national championship will be held May 20-22 in Washington, D.C., where the first prize is a $25,000 college scholarship.
