Eighth-grader Matthew Vo of W.T. Clarke Middle School will be heading to Albany for the second straight year to compete at the state level of the National Geographic Geography Bee.

Matthew won the middle school’s annual bee on December 13 and went on to place in the state’s top 100 on January’s online qualifying test. He will travel to Albany for the state competition at the New York State Museum on March 29. Students will gather in the state capitol for the chance to earn a spot in the national round, to be held at the National Geographic Society headquarters in Washington, D.C., from May 19-22.

The district congratulates Matthew and wishes him luck in the next round.
