Students qualify for state-level Geographic Bee

Holden resident Eric Benoit, a seventh-grader at St. Peter-Marian Junior High School, and Philip J. Dombrowski, an eighth-grader at Paxton Center School, have qualified to represent their schools and participate at the state level of the National Geographic Bee sponsored by Google and Plum Creek.

Eric competed against the rest of the students in his class to qualify to take the state preliminary exam. There, he passed the written exam and is now eligible for the finals.

Philip also competed against his classmates and placed in the top 100 on the exam, qualifying to take part in the state bee.

The state bee will be held April 9 at Worcester State College.

One winner from each state and territory in the U.S. will advance to the national competition, to be held May 25 and 26 at The National Geographic Society Headquarters in Washington, D.C.

The final round of the 2010 National Geographic Bee, featuring Alex Trebek, will be aired on the National Geographic Channel in May.
