I think the National Geographic Geo Bee competition has been held at my school before, but no one has sponsored this activity since I arrived at Lab seven years ago. This year, I decided to take this on as I thought it was a basic way to facilitate global awareness. I met with kids once a week in the fall and we looked at materials, played games, and visited web sites. Lo and behold, our school winner, Tommy, has qualified for the state level competition to be held March 30 at the Field Museum. I am so excited for Tommy!! Woo hoo!
