Congratulations to Pranit Nanda, the 2014 First Place Winner of the Colorado Geographic Bee
Pranit won this year's bee by answering this final question: "What sea in the Arctic Ocean separates the Taymyr Peninsula from the archipelago Novaya Zemlya?". This is the third year in a row that Pranit has won the Colorado State Geographic Bee; a first in the bee's 26 year history. Pranit will be headed to Washington DC next month for the National Geographic Bee. We wish him good luck! Read more about the recent event at The Denver Post.

With the rapid pace of change in the 21st century, it is more important than ever that young people understand the world around them. However, the focus of current education reform is elsewhere—leaving educators who are committed to teaching young people about their interconnected world out in the cold. National Geographic wants to change all that and is launching the Geo-Education Initiative to improve education about our world. The first step in this initiative is building a Geo-Educator Community for educators who are committed to teaching their students about the world.
