Ariel Mazow Qualifies for California National Geographic State Bee Semifinals

Parker Middle School student Ariel Mazow, Class of 2022, has qualified to compete in the 2017 California National Geographic State Bee. He and 100 other qualifiers from around the state will converge on to the California State University, Fresno campus Friday, March 31, 2017 to test their geographic knowledge. The winner will travel to Washington, D.C. for the National Geographic Bee Championship held in May.

Ariel won the Parker Geography Bee in January and took a qualifying test to earn a spot in the state semifinals.

Now in its 29th year, the National Geographic Bee, created by the National Geography Society, aims to spark interest in geography for students in grades four to eight and works to encourage teachers to include the subject in their classrooms.
