Congratulations to Sixth Group student Akshay Badlani for his recent accomplishments in the National Geographic Bee! Akshay won the Nat Geo Bee contest at ACS and then went on to become one of 100 finalists statewide to make it to the Illinois State Bee, held at Illinois State University on March 31. Although he won’t be moving on to the national finals, we are very proud of his success at the state level – well done Akshay!
