St. Apollinaris seventh grader, Joe Bosetti will compete in the state level of the National Geographic Geography Bee. Bosetti is the fifth student from St. Apollinaris in 18 years to compete at the state level.
To qualify for the state level, Bosetti had to beat out 65 St. Apollinaris students ranging from fifth through eighth grades. With the title of St. Apollinaris School Champion under his belt, Bosetti progressed on to take a written exam from National Geographic.
Bosetti scored among the top 100 students in the state (based on his qualifying written score) and qualified to represent St. Apollinaris School in Sacramento. The winner of the state contest will receive a trip to Washington, D.C., where he or she will represent California in the national finals.
