Share post:

Philip Chivily will represent Our Lady of the Lake School at the National Geographic Society’s New Jersey state Geography Bee for the second year in a row.

Chivily is in the seventh grade at OLL, and he’s been preparing for the bee with the help of his teacher, Marilyn Kessler.

The state finals will be held on April 4, and they promise to be intense. Students compete in eight rounds of questions, and the top ten qualify for the finals, which include oral, written, and identification questions. The state champion goes to Washington, D.C., for the finals on May 19 to 21.Philip-Chivily-GeoBee2014
