Garrett Means, an 8th grader at Snowy Range Academy in Laramie, will represent Wyoming at the 25th annual National Geographic Bee in Washington, DC, May 20-22.

Means is just one of 54 remaining in the nationwide competition that saw over five million participants. On May 20th, Means will resume his journey as he tries to be one of the top 10 finalists which will lead to the final round on May 22nd moderated by Jeopardy host Alex Trebek and taped to air the following evening on May 23rd. It will be aired on the National Geographic Channel and National Geography Wild at 7 p.m. ET/PT.

Means said “I’m excited to go to the East Coast for the first time in my life” and added “I never expected to go this far and that this has come as a nice surprise for me.” Means said his parents, friends, and teachers have all been very supportive. The 8th grader went on to say “my dad’s a history teacher at the University and my mom has bought me prep books so I’d have to thank those two especially for my run in all of this.”

Means said he was first interested in geography by simply just looking at his mom’s globe at home on somewhat of a daily basis. He went on to say “my favorite subject is European History and I want to learn more and more about it as I go along.”

Means will represent the state of Wyoming in the 25th annual National Geographic Bee on May 20th through May 22nd in Washington D.C.
