Lee Burneson Middle School student Kyle Yu is heading to Columbus to defend his state Geographic Bee title and compete for the chance to represent Ohio at the National Geographic Bee next month in Washington, D.C.
School-level winners took a qualifying test and the top 100 scores were named semifinalists and eligible to compete at the state Bee. State qualifiers compete in an oral competition, to be held April 4 in Columbus. State winners will be invited to the National Geographic headquarters in late May to compete in the national finals for scholarships.
