Dennis Wollin eligible for state Geography Bee

Dennis Wollin of St. Peter’s Lutheran School has been notified by the National Geographic Society that he is one of the semifinalists eligible to compete in the 2015 Illinois State Geography Bee.
The National Geographic Bee is sponsored by Google and Plum Creek. The State competition will be held at the College of DuPage in Glen Ellyn on Friday, March 27.
This is the second level of the National Geographic Bee competition, which is now in its 27th year.
School bees were held for students in grades 4-8 in schools throughout the state to determine each school champion. School champions then took a qualifying test, which was submitted to the National Geographic Society. Only 100 students in the state qualified for this upcoming competition.
Dennis Wollin, a fifth-grader, is the son of David and Tracy Wollin of rural St. Peter.
