RHMS Geo Bee
State qualifier Ben Butler
Submitted by Sharon Majetich
Congratulations are in order for Rocky Heights Middle School (RHMS) seventh grader, Ben Butler, who qualified to represent RHMS at the state of Colorado National Geographic Bee. Thousands of students from the state competed in the Bee, but only 100 students passed the qualifying test to move on to state.
Butler remarked, “There were lots of people at the bee, and it was fun to know that I was one of the people that made it that far in the competition. I never knew I was good at it until I competed in the event!”
One winner from each state will move on to compete in the National Bee which is held in Washington DC later this spring and is televised on National Geographic Television. For more information about the National Geographic Bee, see www.nationalgeographic.com/geobee.
