Edina Kid Wins Geography Contest 08 Apr 13

A seventh-grader from Edina has won a statewide geography contest and will represent Minnesota at the national finals next month. Alexander Conrad of Valley View Middle School took top honors Friday at the 2013 Minnesota Geographic Bee. He beat out about 100 other competitors. He wins a hundred dollars, a National Geographic DVD and a trip to Washington DC, where he’ll represent our state in the finals in May. If he wins there he’ll receive a $25,000 college scholarship along with an all-expense-paid trip to the Galapagos Islands.
