This landlocked state is the 7th largest in America, and its name is derived from the Spanish phrase for "snow-capped mountain range."  Can you guess it?  (Answer: It's Nevada!)  Students will have to answer questions like these for the 2011 National Geographic Bee, May 24-25 in Washington, D.C.  Get your maps out, as we match wits with Nevada's state champ.

GUEST
Asimwe Oben-Nyarko, 8th Grade, Schofield Middle School; Nevada state representative, 2011 National Geographic Bee
