May 23, 2007—"Hue" became hurray for 14-year-old Caitlin Snaring, who snagged this year's National Geographic Bee championship at the National Geographic Society headquarters in Washington, D.C.
The Redmond, Washington, eighth grader correctly identified Hue as Vietnam's imperial capital for more than a century to win the title. She also got a $25,000 college scholarship and a lifetime membership in the National Geographic Society.
The homeschooled Snaring is the second girl to win the Bee since 1989.
Match wits with Snaring and second-place winner Suneil Iyar, 12, of Kansas, as they face off in the tense final round with host Alex Trebek.
