Indian-American student wins National Geographic Bee contest

Indian-American student wins National Geographic Bee contest

WASHINGTON: Pranay Varada, the 14-year-old Indian-American student, has won the prestigious (प्रतिष्ठित) $50,000 National Geographic Bee competition, maintaining the dominance of the community in the contest. "I was absolutely sure I could win that challenge," Varada said soon after bagging the coveted competition, which for the past one decade has been dominated (प्रभुत्व) by Indian-Americans."
"Having done this for such a long time and winning it now, it's just a feeling of satisfaction," Varada, an eighth grader from Texas, said. A runner up last year, Varada this time did not want to give any chance. He was declared the winner as he won the first tie breaker question when he correctly identified the Kunlun Mountains as the 1,200 mile range that separates the Taklimakan Desert from the Tibetan Plateau. As a result, he gets $50,000 in scholarship and other prizes. Veda Bhattaram another Indian-American from New Jersey finished third at the finals held here last night, while Thomas Wright from Wisconsin was declared the runner up. Indian-Americans have won the National Geographic Bee competition for the last six consecutive(लगातार).
Last year, Rishi Nair, a sixth grader from Florida, had won the contest.
