"Each year thousands of schools in the United States participate in the National Geographic Bee using materials prepared by the National Geographic Society. The contest is designed to encourage teachers to include geography in their classrooms, spark student interest in the subject, and increase public awareness about geography. Schools with students in grades four through eight are eligible for this entertaining and challenging test of geographic knowledge." - nationalgeographic.com
We challenge our 8th graders in this event each year. Our winner this year is Ethan Nielson who will compete at the next level in the spring.
Congratulations to Ethan and a big thank you to Mrs. Gardner for sponsoring and hosting the Geography Bee at our school!
