TMS 8th grader, Nima Sherpa, has qualified to compete in the state level competition of the National Geographic Bee! The Connecticut State Bee will be held on Friday, April 1, 2016. Please see the attached congratulatory letter.
Dear Principal, Bee Coordinator, and Parent/Guardian:
Your student, Nima Sherpa, from Thompson Middle School has qualified to compete in the state level competition of the National Geographic Bee!
The Connecticut State Bee will be held on Friday, April 1, 2016. Please visit the State Bee Homepage, and click on Connecticut to access your state Bee website and review event information. If you have questions regarding the event, please contact your State Bee Coordinator, whose email address is listed on the Connecticut State Bee website.
Eligible state Bee competitors must be in grades four through eight, and must have participated in and won the competition at the school level that involved at least six students. We reserve the right to disqualify a student at any time if the rules have not been followed.
The National Geographic Bee supports the participation of students with physical disabilities such as vision or hearing. The teacher or parent of a physically disabled student should notify the National Geographic Bee office at NGBee@ngs.org by March 18, so that accommodations can be made.
It is the responsibility of the student’s family and/or teacher-escort to arrange travel to the state Bee, and to report to the registration area on time.
One champion from each state and territory will advance to the national competition, which will be held May 22-25 at the National Geographic Society headquarters in Washington, D.C. Transportation and accommodations for the Washington, D.C. trip are provided for each state champion.
Many thanks to the School Bee Coordinator for organizing the school Bee. We hope you’ll register Thompson Middle School for next year’s competition. Registration opens in mid-August at NatGeoBee.org.
Thank you all for supporting the National Geographic Bee, and best wishes for Nima’s success in the Connecticut State Bee.
