Several Berkeley County School District students competed in the National Geographic Bee’s state competition over spring break.

Three of those students finished among the top 10 in the state-level competition hosted in Columbia on Friday, April 6. More than 100 students from all over South Carolina qualified for the competition after first winning school-level National Geographic Bee events.

** The National Geographic Bee is designed to encourage teachers to include geography in their classrooms, spark student interest in the subject, and increase public awareness about geography. Schools with students in grades four through eight are eligible for the annual challenge.
