A Morgantown 7th grader will represent West Virginia in this year’s National Geographic Bee in Washington D.C.

Hunter Moore, a 7th grader from Clarksburg, representing South Harrison Middle School won second place in the event and third place went to Keith Skaggs, a 7th grader from Taylor County Middle School in Grafton.
