Lower school students were recently given the opportunity to participate in the 2010 National Geographic Bee. Over 40 fourth and fifth graders volunteered and competed during their lunch hours in early January. Ten students were selected for the championship round later in the week with Nikhil Manglik, Gr. 5, edging out classmate Venkat Sankar in the championship. Manglik, the winner last year as well, will take a further test at Harker, which will be submitted to National Geographic for a chance to compete at the state level.
