Katherine Timm was prepared to represent Illinois in the GeoBee, the annual geography contest hosted by National Geographic, testing kids’ understanding of the world all across America. 

Timm, a seventh grader at the Catholic St. Joseph School in Lockport, had made it to the state finals. She was supposed to represent her school March 27 in Normal for the statewide competition, and she felt she had a good chance.
