Eighth grader Anaiah Matthews said he is preparing every day for the state geography bee.
If at first you don’t succeed, you try again. For Brooks Wester Middle School student Anaiah Matthews, that persistence took him all the way to the state competition of the National Geographic Bee.
The eighth grader said he was eliminated in the school primary round of the geography bee last year, but he didn’t let that keep him down.
The National Geographic State Bee takes place April 1 in Bedford, Texas. The winner of the state competition will move on to the national competition in May.
