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.
