Congratulations to Harding 7th grader Jamie Holland, who has qualified for the Ohio Geographic Bee! Jamie, who is the Harding Bee champion, is one of 100 middle schoolers from across the state who will compete for the Ohio title and a chance to move on to the National Bee. 

Jamie earned the right to take a qualifying test for the State Bee by winning the Harding Bee. The State Bee will take place on April 6 in Columbus. Nationally, more than 10,000 4-8 graders take part in the Bee. The contest is designed to encourage teachers to include geography in their classrooms, spark student interest in the subject, and increase public awareness about geography.
