(1/16/14) — Ben Samson, a seventh grade student at South Marshall Middle School, won the school-level competition of the National Geographic Bee on Wednesday, Jan. 15, and now has a chance at a $50,000 college scholarship.

Ben will now take a written test, and the students with the top 100 scores in Kentucky will participate in the State Bee in April.
