TEWKSBURY, MA -- Sam Ros, a 4th Grade Student at the Trahan Elementary School, won the school competition of the National Geographic Bee on January 23, 2015 and a chance at a $50,000 college scholarship. The school Bee, at which students answered questions on geography in the United States and around the world, was the first round in the 27th annual National Geographic Bee. Second place winner for the school was 4th Grader Cian Dawson, while the 3rd place winner was 4th Grade student Darya Mehrabani.

Thousands of schools around the United States and in the five U.S. territories are participating in the 2015 Bee. The school champions, including Ros, will take a written test; up to 100 of the top scorers on that test will then be eligible to compete in the Massachusetts State Bee on March 27, 2015.

The National Geographic Society will provide an all-expense paid trip to Washington, D.C., for state winners to participate in the Bee national championship rounds on May 11-13, 2015. The first-place national champion will receive a $50,000 college scholarship, a lifetime membership in the Society, including a subscription to National Geographic magazine, and a trip to the Galapagos Islands, courtesy of Lindblad Expeditions and National Geographic.

Award-winning journalist Soledad O’Brien will moderate the national finals on May 13. The program will air on television. Check local listings for date and times.
