Lower named Ohio National Geographic State Bee Semifinalist

| February 28, 2017

WEST LAFAYETTE – Jordan Lower, a seventh grader at Ridgewood Middle School, was notified by the National Geographic Society that he is one of the semifinalists eligible to compete in the 2017 Ohio National Geographic State Bee. The contest will be held on Friday, March 31, 2017.

This is the second level of the National Geographic Bee competition, which is now in its 29th year. School bees were held in schools with fourth- through eighth-grade students throughout the state to determine each school champion. School champions then took a qualifying test, which they submitted to the National Geographic Society. The National Geographic Society has invited up to 100 of the top-scoring students in each of the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Department of Defense Dependents Schools and U.S. territories to compete in the state bees.

Lower is the son of Merlene and Michael Lower. He is one of three students in Ridgewood Middle School history to achieve this accomplishment.
