Geo Bee

Beaver Lake MS Students Battle Over Geographic Knowledge

Posted by User Not Found on 26 January, 2016

Do you know whether Indonesia or Mexico has the world’s largest Muslim population? How about which Canadian province produces more than half of the country’s manufactured goods?

At Beaver Lake Middle School, students from all grade levels recently answered questions just like these in the National Geographic Geography Bee competition. Of the students who competed in their Social Studies classes, twenty-nine qualified for the finals round. The qualifiers represented all grade levels and competed in an after school competition for the title of National Geographic Geography Bee Champion. After many brain wracking questions, seventh grader Luke Hastings was crowned the champion. Seventh grader Allen She took second place and eighth grader Davin Seju placed third.

After being crowned champion, Luke took the National Geographic Geography Bee on-line exam to qualify for the state competition in the spring.
