Triton Middle School student, Darien Jensen has been notified by the National Geographic Society that he is one of the semifinalists eligible to compete in the 2014 Minnesota State Geographic Bee, sponsored by Google and Plum Creek.

This is the second level of the National Geographic Bee competition, which is now in its 26th year. Geographic Bees were held in schools with 4th-8th grade students throughout the state to determine each school's Bee winner. School-level winners then took a qualifying test, which they submitted to the National Geographic Society. The National Geographic Society invited the students with the top 100 scores in each of the 50 states, Washington DC, Department of Defense Schools, and US territories to compete at the state level.

The 2014 Minnesota State Geographic Bee will be held at St Cloud State University, in St Cloud, on Friday, April 4th.

The state winner will receive $100, the "Complete National Geographic on DVD," and a trip to Washington, D.C., to represent Minnesota in the National Geographic Bee finals to be held at National Geographic Society headquarters, May 19-21. The national winner will receive a $50,000 college scholarship and lifetime membership in the Society. The national winner will also travel (along with one parent or guardian), all expenses paid, to the Galapagos Islands, where they will experience geography firsthand through up-close encounters with the islands' unique wildlife and landscapes.Visit www.nationalgeographic.com/geobee for more information on the National Geographic Bee.
