Groves is geo bee semifinalist
Daniel Groves, an eighth-grade student at Hawaii Preparatory Academy, is one of the semifinalists eligible to compete Friday in the 2014 Hawaii National Geographic Bee at the Neil S. Blaisdell Center on Oahu. The event is sponsored by Google and Plum Creek. This is the second level of the National Geographic Bee competition, which is now in its 26th year. Bees were held in schools with fourth- through eighth-grade students throughout the state to determine each school’s Bee winner. School-level winners then took a qualifying test, which they submitted to the National Geographic Society.
The National Geographic Society invited the students with the top 100 scores in each of the 50 states, District of Columbia, Department of Defense Dependents Schools, and U.S. territories to compete at the state level. The state winner will receive $100, the “Complete National Geographic on DVD,” and a trip to Washington, D.C. to represent Hawaii in the National Geographic Bee finals to be held at National Geographic Society headquarters May 19-21.
