    Organizers say 100 young geography pros from around Vermont will compete in a statewide geographic bee at Middlebury College.

    The winner will go on to compete in the 25th annual National Geographic Bee in Washington, D.C., in May.

    Today, Vermont fourth to eight-graders will complete in the statewide bee. The preliminary rounds take place at 1 p.m. with the final round at 3:30 p.m. in Mead Chapel.

    The winner will head to Washington, where the first prize in the national competition is a $25,000 college scholarship and lifetime membership in the National Geographic Society, which is sponsoring the event.
