“I hope that by winning today, I inspire other girls to try geography, because the world is the greatest subject I’ve ever learned."
— Caitlin Snaring, winner of the National Geographic Bee in USA Today
Think you know your geography?
Eighth-grader Caitlin Snaring from Redmond, Washington does.
This past week she outsmarted over 5 million students across the country to win the first place prize in the National Geographic Bee. That makes her only the second girl to win the competition since it began in 1989!
