The National Geography Bee Winner is Eric Yang

This year's National Geographic Geography Bee winner is Eric Yang, congratulations Eric. According to The Official Google Blog, Eric is a seventh grade student in Texas who has already scored 2200 on the SAT. If your students weren't able to participate in the geography bee or didn't quite make it to the finals they may want to practice for next year by playing the GeoBee Challenge on the National Geographic website. Every day the GeoBee Challenge offers ten new questions so your students can come back and practice every day.
