By Special to the Monitor

Daniel Ben-Naim, an eighth grade student at Los Alamos Middle School won the school-level competition of the National Geographic Bee on Jan. 12.
The school-level Bee, at which students answered oral questions on geography, was the first round in the 23rd annual National Geographic Bee. Google sponsored this year’s Bee.
Ben-Naim and Ryan Harbert, also an eighth grade student, went head-to-head in the championship round.  
Ben-Naim edged out Harbert by naming Kilimanjaro as Africa’s highest peak that is part of a national park in Tanzania.
All finalists received National Geographic Society awards and gift certificates from Daniel’s Café.
Ben-Naim and other school champions will now take a written test; up to 100 of the top scorers will be eligible to compete in the state bee April 1.  
The NGS will provide an all-expenses-paid trip to Washington, D.C., for state champions and teacher-escorts to participate in the Bee national championship rounds on May 24 and 25.  
The first-place national winner will receive a $25,000 college scholarship, a lifetime membership in the Society and a trip to the Galapagos Islands, courtesy of Lindblad Expeditions and National Geographic.  
“Jeopardy!” host Alex Trebek will moderate the national finals on
May 25.
