Ten Middle School students competed in the finals of this annual competition.
Ten St. Stephen’s and St. Agnes Middle School students tested their knowledge in the final round of the school’s 2018 National Geographic Bee, a school-level competition using materials prepared by the National Geographic Society. The final round took place in the Middle School gym, where students answered an array of oral and written questions, such as choosing hardiness zones on a map. During the competition, contestants were eliminated after answering two questions incorrectly, until two students remained. In the championship round, the two finalists squared off to answer a series of three questions. Each student had 15 seconds to write an answer to the same question. The champion, Dominick D. '24, will take a written test to attempt to qualify for the state-level competition. State qualifiers participate in an oral competition in the spring. The judges were Middle School history teachers and Middle School History Teacher Jon Japha moderated the event. Good luck to the champion and congratulations to the finalists!
