    Local Students Compete in the First Round of National Competition

    YAKIMA, WA JANUARY 30, 2019—161 students from Nob Hill Elementary participated in the school-level competition of the National Geographic GeoBee on 1-30-19. Mack Stephenson, a 5th-grade student, won first place, with Paige Gasseling, a 4th-grade student, winning second place and Ryker Hatley, a 4th-grade student, finishing in third place.


    The school-level competition is the first round in the annual National Geographic GeoBee, a geography competition designed to inspire and reward students’ curiosity about the world.  Questions cover not only geography but also cultures, physical features, history, and earth science.

    The National Geographic Society developed the GeoBee in 1989 in response to concern about

    the lack of geographic knowledge among young people in the United States. Over more than

    three decades, 120 million students have learned about the world through participation in the


    School champions, including Mack Stephenson, will take an online qualifying test; up to

    100 of the top test scorers in each state then become eligible to compete in their State GeoBee.

    The winners of the State GeoBees receive an all-expenses-paid trip to National Geographic

    Society headquarters in Washington, D.C., next May to participate in the GeoBee national

    championship, competing for cash prizes, scholarships, and an all-expenses-paid Lindblad

    expedition to the Galápagos Islands aboard the National Geographic Endeavour ll. Learn more

    at www.natgeobee.org.


    In addition to the GeoBee, National Geographic also offers classroom resources, student

    experiences and professional development opportunities for educators.
