Katy student, Kunal Budhiraja, an eighth-grader at Beck Junior High, was recently named a semifinalist eligible to compete in the upcoming Texas National Geographic Bee in Bedford on March 30. Preliminary bees were held at individual campuses, with each winner then taking a qualifying test, which was submitted to the National Geographic Society. In each of the 50 states, as well as the District of Columbia, Department of Defense Dependents schools, and U.S. territories, the National Geographic Society invited students with the top 100 scores to compete at the state level.

The state winner will receive $100, The Complete National Geographic on DVD, and a trip to Washington, D.C. to compete in the national finals at the National Geographic Society headquarters May 22 to 24. The first-place national winner will receive a $25,000 college scholarship and lifetime membership in the society, as well as an all-expenses-paid trip with a parent or guardian to the Galapagos Islands.
