On Tuesday, January 14, 2014, twelve eager Cloverly Elementary School students entered the Instructional Resource Center to compete in this year’s National Geographic Bee.
After seven grueling rounds, the top three contestants emerged ready to battle it out for first place.  The exciting tie-breaking rounds were bombarded with many difficult questions.  Once the dust settled, Cloverly’s first, second, and third place winners emerged.  Sixth grade student, Isabel Li, won first place.  5th grade student, Jeffrey Van, won second place.  4th grade student, Eric Khaw, won third place.  The winners were recognized at January’s Spirit Rally and all contestants were invited to an “In and Out” cheeseburger luncheon with the school’s principal, Stephen Martin Edo.
Congratulations to all the winners, participants, and teacher Denise Galvan for organizing, emceeing, and hosting this annual event.
