Matthew Maribojoc, a sixth grader at Willow Springs Elementary School in Fairfax, will compete in the Virginia state finals of the National Geographic Bee on March 30 at Shenandoah University in Winchester. Matthew joins the top 100 finalists among Virginia’s fourth- to eighth-grade students who won their school-level geography bee championships, which qualified them to take a written geography exam to select the state finalists. The winner of the state finals will advance to the national competition, which will be held on May 22-24 at the National Geographic Society headquarters in Washington, D.C.
