National Geography Bee
The National Geography Bee, the GeoBee, is an academic competition for grades 5-8. Students answer oral questions in class on a variety of geographical topics prepared by the National Geographic Society.
The top scorers from each class advance to the school bee. The top 10 from grades 5-8 compete in a double elimination round to determine who the school winner will be. The winner of the school bee then takes a test to qualify for a spot in the top 100 for the state competition.

We would like to congratulate Maddie K the school winner of the National Geography Bee. She will now take a written test to be able to compete at the state level. Our second place winner is Marinel S. The other finalists were Kaitlyn K, Alejandra M, Nicholas U, Molly W, Kamil P, Charlize G, Nicholas W, and Jack S.
