The next far-away location Christian Cecere might have to identify is Albany, N.Y. where he could be competing in the statewide Geographic Bee.
Cecere, an eighth-grader at Valhalla Middle School, recently won his school’s geography competition, beating 18 other students who spent hours tackling questions about domestic and foreign cities as well as various countries and cultures.
Christian, 13, will take a qualifying test to determine his eligibility for the state competition, which will be held in April. If he makes it there and wins, he would go on to the National Geographic Bee in Washington, D.C. in May.
With his geography skills, we’re sure he’ll be able to find his way there. Good luck, Chris.
