Chivily is in the seventh grade at OLL, and he’s been preparing for the bee with the help of his teacher, Marilyn Kessler.

The state finals will be held on April 4, and they promise to be intense. Students compete in eight rounds of questions, and the top ten qualify for the finals, which include oral, written, and identification questions.
