The Newcastle 2018 National Geographic Bee Champion is...

Posted by Elizabeth Egan on 26 January, 2018
After outstanding effort by all thirteen finalists in the Newcastle Elementary National Geographic Bee, the exciting championship round came down to Carter Ackermann and Caleb Chin!  In the end, it was Carter who earned the title of school champion. Carter will now take an online test provided by the National Geographic Society in an attempt to qualify for the state competition. The top 100 students in the state (selected based on qualifying test scores) will represent their schools and compete at the state level on April 2, 2018.
 
Compliments again to all of our school finalists who competed on stage this year: Carter A, Jordan A, Dylan B, Ava B, Hudson C, Caleb C, Carson D, Jacob F, Lukas F, Andrew K, Aditi M, Kaela M & Jacob S!  Thank you to Ms. Wilhelm for being the teacher coordinator this year and Mr. Mellish for being the emcee. Many thanks also to Wendy Kirchner & Rob Wyman, from the City of Newcastle, for joining us as judges. Lastly, thank you to the PTSA for sponsoring this exciting event! We all wish Carter the best of luck!
