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? We can't tell you, as other schools are still having their competitions and the GeoBee asks that we not share the questions or the answers. Check back later in January for a longer story about Daniel's win—and the surprising way he figured out the final answer.
