An Evansville student is one of the semifinalists for the 2019 National Geographic GeoBee Indiana State Competition.

Ingrid Braden, an Evansville Day School student, will compete to make it to the national competition in Washington D.C. this May.

This is the second level of the National Geographic GeoBee competition.

School GeoBees were held in schools with 4-8th grade students throughout the state to find each school’s champion.

School champions then had to take an online qualifying test.

This year, the prize money for all state GeoBees is $1,000 and they’ll receive a medal.

The state competition will be held on Friday, March 29.
