Rao is semi-finalist in Geographic Bee

Submitted By Vinay Rao

Dhruv Rao, a nine year old fourth grade student at Challenger School Ardenwood, Newark, has been named a 2014 California National Geographic Bee semifinalist by the National Geographic Society. State finals will be held at California State University, Fresno on April 4. The winner of that competition will receive $100 and a trip to Washington, D.C., to represent California in the National Geographic Bee finals May 19 Ð 21.

Dhruv first became the school champion in November 2013, when he competed at his school, including 8th grade students. Early in 2014, in the written portion of the qualifying tests, he was among the top 100 in California. Best of luck, Dhruv!
