Douglas Frederick, Prince of Peace Catholic School eighth grade student, won the Hoover school’s annual National Geographic Bee. The Bee is conducted every year as a celebration of learning geography.
He was among 165 students in grades five through eight in the preliminary competition at POP. The field was narrowed to 10 finalists who competed for the school title. Douglas will now take a written test to qualify for the state level Bee held at Samford University this spring. The winner there will go on to compete at the National Geography Bee held in Washington, DC in May. Douglas is the son of Scott and Lisa Frederick of Hoover.
Runners up were Sara Sypeck and Laura Granger.
The National Geographic Bee is an annual contest sponsored by the National Geographic Society. It’s open to students in fourth through eighth grade in participating schools. Prince of Peace students look forward to this fun and challenging event every year.
