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 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!
Brock Juliano and Ms. Mosley
