Local Homeschool Student Named Tennessee National Geographic State Bee Semifinalist
Christopher Allen, a 5th grade homeschool student and son of Andy and Sarah Allen, will compete in the State Geo Bee in Nashville on March 27. Christopher won the 2015 Hamilton County Homeschool Geo Bee sponsored by Collegedale Public Library in January. The event, at which 4th-8th grade students answered oral questions on geography, was the first round in the 27th annual National Geographic Bee. The local winners then took a qualifying test which was submitted to the National Geographic Society. Students with the top 100 scores in each of the 50 states go on to compete at the state level. Christopher won the homeschool bee last year and went to the State competition where he was one of only two fourth graders who participated. He correctly answered 6 of his 8 questions in the preliminary round. Librarian Judy Luster went to Nashville to see Christopher compete in 2014. We wish him good luck in 2015!
