Chadwick Woods, a 7th grade student at St. Theresa Catholic School in Phoenix, and the son of Lillian and Keith Woods, has been notified by the National Geographic Society that he is one of the semifinalists eligible to compete in the 2012 Arizona National Geographic Bee, sponsored by Google and Plum Creek. Bees were held in schools with fourth- through eighth-grade students throughout the state to determine each school’s Bee winner. School-level winners then took a qualifying test, which they submitted to the National Geographic Society. In each of the 50 states, as well as the District of Columbia, the Department of Defense Dependents Schools, and the U.S. territories, the National Geographic Society invited the students with the top 100 scores to compete at the state level.
The 2012 Arizona National Geographic Bee will be held Tucson Convention Center, Tucson, on Friday, March 30, 2012.
The state winner will receive $100, the “Complete National Geographic on DVD”, and a trip to Washington, D.C., where he/she will represent Arizona in the national finals at National Geographic Society headquarters, May 22 – 24, 2012. The first-place national winner will receive a $25,000 college scholarship and lifetime membership in the Society. The national winner will also travel (along with one parent or guardian), all expenses paid, to the Galápagos Islands. The winner will experience geography firsthand through up-close encounters with the wildlife and landscape of Galápagos. Travel for the trip is provided by Lindblad Expeditions and National Geographic. For additional information on the National Geographic Bee please visit www.nationalgeographic.com/geobee.

We will be talking about the great John Ford classic films that were made in Monument Valley, Arizona, with Stuart Rosebrook, Ph.D.
Rosebrook is a son of the American West. He grew up in Los Angeles, California, but spent most of the summers of his youth at Orme’s Quarter Circle V-Bar Ranch Camp in northern Arizona. Those years on the wide open vistas of Orme’s 20,000 acre spread formed Stuart Rosebrook’s writing style, and interest in western history.
Today, Rosebrook is an acclaimed editor, writer, and historian relating to media and the American West. He has been a featured writer for Arizona Highways magazine, True West magazine, and was a commentator for the John Wayne 100th Birthday DVD Edition of “True Grit.”
