BRONXVILLE, N.Y. -- Henry, an eighth-grade student at The Chapel School in Bronxville and the son of Stephen and Kathleen, has been notified by the National Geographic Society that he is one of the semifinalists eligible to compete in the 2016 New York State Bee.

The contest will be held at the New York State Museum in Albany on Friday, April 1. This is the second level of the National Geographic Bee competition, which is now in its 28th 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 an online qualifying test.

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 US territories to compete in the state Bees. Each state champion will receive $100, the National Geographic book “The National Parks: An Illustrated History” and a medal, and will journey to Washington, DC, to represent their state in the National Geographic Bee Championship at National Geographic Society Headquarters, May 22 to 25.

The national champion will receive a $50,000 college scholarship and lifetime membership in the National Geographic Society. The national champion will also travel to Alaska’s coastal wilderness, including Glacier bay National Park, in recognition of the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service. Visit their website for more information on the National Geographic Bee.

The 2016 National Geographic Bee Championship final round, moderated for the first time by journalist and humorist, Mo Rocca, will air on the National Geographic Channel and Nat Geo WILD on Friday, May 27, at 8 p.m. and later on public television stations. Check local television listings for air date and time in your area. The Chapel School is located at 172 White Plains Road in Bronxville. Open Houses are scheduled throughout the year.
