National Geographic Society has announced that Tobey Shim ’20 is one of the semifinalists eligible to compete in the 2015 California National Geographic State Bee, sponsored by Google and Plum Creek. The contest will be held at California State University Fresnoon March 27.
The State Bee is the second level of the National Geographic Bee competition, which is now in its 27th year. School Bees were held in schools with fourth- through eighth-grade students throughout the state to determine each school champion. School champions then took a qualifying test, which they submitted to the National Geographic Society. The National Geographic Society has invited up to 100 of the top-scoring students in each of the 50 states, District of Columbia, Department of Defense Dependents Schools and U.S. territories to compete in the State Bees.
The Bishop’s School is an independent, coeducational college-preparatory day school for students in grades six through twelve who live throughout San Diego County. Founded in 1909, the School is affiliated with the Episcopal church.
