We're partial to geography. So we're happy to note the May 21 victory by 13-year-old Akhil Rekulapelli of Dulles, Va., at the National Geographic Bee. It's the first time a contestant from Virginia has won. The State of Washington has the most wins in the contest's 26 years, with five, just ahead of Michigan's four.
