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.
