Rosanne Pack photo Milton Middle School student Elizabeth Redden doesn't have to wonder where in the world as she prepares for the next step in the National Geographic Geography Bee. She is the Bee winner for her school. Redden wins Milton Middle Geographic Geography Bee Elizabeth Redden, an eighth grade student at Milton Middle School, won the school-level competition of the National Geog- raphy Bee on January 6, and with it, a chance at a $25,000 college scholarship. The school-level bee ai which students answer oral questions on geography, is the first round in the ninth annual Na- tional Geography Bee. The event is sponsored by the National Geo- graphic Society and Sylvan Learning Centers, which provide supplemental education services to students at all skill levels. School-level winners will next take a written test and up to 100 of the top scorers in each state will be eligible for the state bee to be held April 4. The National Geographic Soci- ety will provide an all-expense paid trip to Washington, D.C., for state champions and their teacher: escorts to participate in the Na- tional Geography Bee national championship on May 27 and 28. The event will be moderated by Alex Trebek, host of television's "Jeopardy!" The first place na- tional winner will receive a $25,000 scholarship. For the first time, a series of ge- ography contests will be offered on National Geographic Online's "kids site," to debut in early 1997 at www.nationalgeographic.com The National Geographic Soci- ety developed the National Geog- raphy Bee in response to a grow- ing concern about the lack of geo- graphic knowledge among young people in the United States. A 10 country Gallup survey conducted for the Society in 1988 and 1989, found that people in the United States, ages 18-24, - the youngest group surveyed - knew less about geography than young people in any other country that participated in the survey. In addition to the Geography Bee, the National Geographic So- ciety also sponsors a number of other geography education initia- tives, including summer geogra- phy institutes for teachers, and the Geographic Alliance Network, which is currently working in every state, the District of Colum- bia, Puerto Rico and Canada.
