National Geographic Bee School Winners Announced

Finalists from 4th and 5th grade classes at each of the elementary schools recently competed in a school-level National Geographic Bee. We are pleased to announce that –

Evergreen’s winner was 5th grader Derek Lane;
Walnut’s winner was 5th grader Joelle Murray; and
West End’s winner was 4th grader Annie Hughes.


This is the 21st year that the National Geographic Society has held the National Geographic Bee for students in grades four through eight in thousands of schools across the United States.

After winning their school-level bees, Derek, Joelle, and Annie took a qualifying test to determine if they will advance to the state-level competition.

All school winners are eligible to win the national championship and its first prize, a $25,000 college scholarship, at the national competition May 19 and 20, 2009 in Washington, D.C.

We wish Derek, Joelle, and Annie well!


Brock Juliano, grade 7 is this year’s winner of the National Geographic Bee in the Woodbury Junior High School. He will represent Woodbury Junior High School at the next round and level of the competition that involves taking a written test administered for the National Geographic Society.

Brock has been a state competitor in this competition in the past – during his elementary school years. We wish him well in his quest to return to that level of the competition!

Congratulations Brock!

Brock Juliano and Ms. Mosley
