Founders Academy 3rd Annual Geography Bee

School Wide Annual Geography Bee
Posted on 01/23/2019
Geography Bee 2019 The Founders Academy 3rd Annual Geography Bee was held on January 16.

Each year, thousands of schools across the country participate in the National Geographic GeoBee. The contest motivates and encourages students to learn about the world and how it works.

It is cross-disciplinary; the questions push students to utilize their skills from science, geography, history, and more. The competition is open to any Middle School student interested in participating. 

This year’s competition was both exciting and impressive! After a lengthy Preliminary Round to determine the top three contestants and a difficult Final Round to whittle it down to two, the remaining contestants, Colin H. (7th grade) and Jackson H. (8th grade), endured a nail biting Championship Round consisting of 3 challenging questions which ended in a tie. A total of eight tie-breaking questions were needed to determine a winner. 

1st Place Winner: Colin H. (7th grade)
2nd Place Winner: Jackson H. (8th grade)
3rd Place Winner: Noah F. (6th grade)
