Jack Butler, an eighth grade student at St. Thomas More Catholic School, won the school competition of the National Geographic Bee and a chance at a $50,000 college scholarship.  The school bee, at which students answered questions on geography, was the first round in the 27th annual National Geographic Bee.

Thousands of schools around the U.S. and the five U.S. territories are participating in the 2015 Bee.  The school champions, including Jack, will take a written test; up to 100 of the top scorers on that test in each state will then be eligible to compete in their state Bee on March 27, 2015.
