Danbury 5th grader takes top spot in local round of National Geographic Bee competition

A fifth-grade student at King Street Intermediate School in Danbury has again taken the top spot at his school in the National Geographic Bee competition.  A.J. Singh is vying for one of 100 spots at the state competition in March.  The state competition is open to students in grades four through eight; 10,000 schools across the country will compete in the 2019 National Geographic Bee for a chance to win a $50,000 scholarship.  Singh said he has learned a lot from participating in last year’s state competition where he rallied back from missing one question to get past the preliminary rounds. He failed to make the final round, but hopes this year will be different.  The final championship will be held May 19-22 at the National Geographic Society headquarters in Washington, D.C.
