A middle school student from Skyview Middle School will put her world knowledge to the test in a global way.
Seventh grader Gabriella Rogers is one of 100 students statewide heading to Anchorage on Friday, April 1, for the 2016 Alaska State Geography Bee, the winner of which will advance to the National Geographic bee Championship in Washington D.C., May 22-25. She has been preparing for months under the tutelage of social studies teacher Rob Moore.
“It is kind of above and beyond the call of duty for the kids,” Moore said.
