Geography bee winner has Perkins County ties PDF Print E-mail

Winner is Zeb Cooper, son of Laura and Stonie Cooper of Prague and grandson of Bill and the late Mona Cooper of Madrid.


Twelve-year-old Zeb Cooper hasn’t ventured far from his family’s home near Prague in Saunders County.

He certainly has never been to the Balkan Peninsula, nor to Washington D.C. for that matter.

But his knowledge of the Balkans—and other places around the globe—won him an all-expense paid trip to Washington, D.C.

The eighth grader at Prague Public Schools is headed to the capital next month to represent Nebraska in the 2010 National Geographic Bee, where the first place prize is a $25,000 college scholarship.
