Can You Name This African River? (Final Question, 2015 Nat Geo Bee)

May 13, 2015 - Which African river is the site of the proposed Grand Inga Dam which, if completed, would be the largest hydroelectric power-generating facility on Earth? Knowing the answer to that last, final-round question was enough to secure the victory in the 2015 National Geographic Bee. Fourteen-year-old Karan Menon, an eighth grader from New Jersey, is the winner of a $50,000 college scholarship, a trip to the Galápagos Islands, and a lifetime membership in the National Geographic Society. Shriya Yarlagadda, a sixth grader from Michigan, came in second place. She missed an earlier question in the final round: Mariupol, a city located at the mouth of the Kalmius River, is located on what sea that is an arm of the Black Sea? Answer: Sea of Azov.
