Experience Key for La Entrada GeoBee Champ

Original post made by carol jensen, La Entrada School, on Feb 1, 2008

Persistence has paid off for La Entrada eighth-grader Sam Falkenhagen. He won the middle school’s National Geographic geography bee after coming in third place four years ago, then second place, and finally second place again last year. He now has a chance at a cash prize or college scholarship if he advances through the state and national bees.
