Arjun Pradhan '23 competed at the 2019 National Geographic GeoBee Georgia State Competition at Georgia College in Milledgeville.
Out of 100 school champions from across Georgia, Arjun placed second in the competition.
To be eligible to compete at the state level, students first must win their school GeoBee. They then take an online qualifying test and the top-100 students in each state advance to the state competition.
In its 31st year, the National Geographic GeoBee is an academic competition for grades four through eight that challenges student knowledge of geography, cultures, physical features, history, and earth science. More than 2.5 million students in nearly 10,000 schools across the country competed in the GeoBee this year.
