Seventh Grader Wins School Round of the National Geographic GeoBee
After a tight competition, including a long championship round, Daniel ’25 took first place in the Sidwell Friends National Geographic GeoBee on Fri., Dec. 13. In front of the entire Middle School, Daniel and his fellow competitors answered a world's worth of questions. What questions?
