Two Freehold Students Qualify for National Geo Bee State Competition

The middle school students are two of 100 children statewide to qualify.

Two students from Freehold qualified to compete in the state level of the National Geographic Bee this month. 

Anthony Moore will represent in Howell. Andy Gao will represent .

Getting to the National GeoBee is no easy feat. Students first competed at the school level against their classmates, answering questions like, "Which of the following cities has the least average annual rainfall? Sydney, Belize City or Kabul?"

Then the local champions had to take a standardized test to qualify for the state competition. Only the top 100 scores were accepted.

The state competition will take place on Mar. 30 at Rowan University. The national competition will take place at the end of May.
