National Geographic Bee Results

January 10, 2014
By KCS Staff

Every year, schools across the country participate in the National Geographic Bee, using materials prepared by the National Geographic Society. According to their website, the bee is designed to "encourage teachers to include geography in their classrooms, spark student interest in the subject, and increase public awareness about geography." Students in grades 4 through 8 are eligible to particpate.

This morning, nine students competed in the school level bee. Congratulations to Emily Kuwaye (Gr. 7B)! She repeats as the school champion for the 3rd year in a row. She faced off in a tie breaker round with Tyson Lin (Gr. 5A), as they answered the same amount of questions correctly in the championship round. Tyson finished in 2nd place, and Ethan Higa (Gr. 7B) placed 3rd. Emily will be given a written test to see if she qualifies for the state competition. Great job!
