Let Sean Continue

Sean has high potential in the National Geographic Bee, coming 2nd in New Hampshire. His dedication for studying for the GeoBee despite his limitations has shown how much he cares about this subject. GeoBee parents push their kids very hard to win the bee, but Sean here has been an independent, hard working student. Having shown tremendous potential this year, Sean should thus be allowed a chance to continue. Geography is not just something Sean should continue only because he's talented with the subject. Geography has a myriad of benefits that come along with it. In whatever career Sean chooses to pursue, geography will always come in handy wherever he goes. GeoBee, may not seem to lead to success in life, but former champions of the GeoBee are graduates of prestigious colleges like Caltech and Harvard. Geography has not just increased Sean's knowledge, but it has led him to make new friends, including GeoBee champions from all across the US. The GeoBee can get you into contact with top people around the country, and by getting to know these people, Sean can establish his credibility on his college application. Preparing for the GeoBee is a fun way of learning about places and people, all across the world! It increases geographic knowledge and helps children in becoming champions. It instills in them the universal principles of education – the desire to learn, the ability to focus, the discipline to stay on course, the importance of working hard, an opportunity to understand novel concepts, and to make a sense of every day, world events. Preparing for Geography Bee leads to learning important life lessons that are absolute pre-requisites for higher achievement. In an increasingly interconnected, interdependent, and compressed world, knowing about the world and the happenings around will enable us to understand how remote events have the ability to impact people's lives all around the world. Geography connects physical systems, cultural characteristics, evolution and modification of environments and availability and distribution of resources. Being Geographically literate and by having a mental map of the world, children will have a decent chance to become global citizens and consequently, primed to be active players on the world stage. They are also more likely to appreciate Mother Earth as the homeland of humankind, for making wise management decisions about how the planet's resources should be conserved and used in the next century. It's Sean's last year in the GeoBee and he'll be faced with more work as an 8th grader, but he deserves to be given his last shot. He has always been a contributing member to our community and if something devastates him, it devastates us as a whole. Sean has high potential in the National Geographic Bee, coming 2nd in New Hampshire. While he is on one of the best soccer teams in the country, the dedication into the GeoBee studying despite his limitations has shown how much he cares about his subject, which he is talented in. GeoBee parents push their kids very hard to win the bee, but Sean here has been an independent, hard working student. Having shown tremendous potential this year, Sean should thus be allowed a chance to continue. Geography is not just something Sean should continue only because he's talented with the subject. Geography has a myriad of benefits that come along with it, as it helps not only give a perspective of the world but also gives a sense of appreciation for it. Without this appreciation, we wouldn't have environmentalists, scientists, and conservationists looking tirelessly to look after the earth and the people who live on it. In whatever career Sean chooses to pursue, geography will always come in handy wherever he goes. Geography has not just increased his knowledge, but it has led him to make new friends, including GeoBee champions from all across the US.
