In February, D-E Middle School student Rohin Juneja ’22 was notified by the National Geographic Society (Nat Geo) that he was one of the semifinalists eligible to compete in the 2017 New Jersey National Geographic State Bee.
This is the second level of the National Geographic Bee competition, which is now in its 29th year. Each year, School Bees are held in schools with fourth- through eighth-grade students throughout the state to determine each school champion. School champions then take a qualifying test, which they submit to the National Geographic Society. Nat Geo then invites up to 100 of the top-scoring students in each of the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Department of Defense Dependents Schools and U.S. territories to compete in the State Bees.
While Rohin was not able to compete in the semi-finals over the Spring Break due to a prior-scheduled overseas family trip, this was a distinctive honor. Congratulations Rohin!
