District Five student advances in National Geographic Bee competition

January 11, 2018

Irmo, SC – Irmo Middle School eighth grader William Ostergaard won the school’s National Geographic Bee competition and has a chance at a $50,000 college scholarship.


The school bee, where students answered questions on geography, was the first round in the 30th annual National Geographic Bee. WIS meteorologist Tim Miller served as moderator for nearly 900 students that participated.


“We are so proud of William and know that he will make Irmo Middle proud,” said Irmo Middle principal Cassy Paschal. “Congratulations to all of our students who put in such hard work in preparing for this competition. We are an International Academic magnet and our students represent that extremely well!”


Thousands of schools around the United States and in the five U.S. territories are participating in the competition. Ostergaard and other champions will take a qualifying test and up to 100 of the top scorers will compete in their state Bee in April.


The National Geographic Society will provide an all-expenses paid trip to Washington, D.C. for state winners to participate in the Bee national championship rounds May 20-23, 2018. The first place national champion will receive a $50,000 college scholarship, a lifetime membership in the Society, including a subscription to National Geographic magazine, and an all-expenses-paid Lindblad expedition to the Galapagos Islands.
