Throughout February, seventh and eighth grade social studies teachers at Grand
Avenue administered geography quizzes in their classrooms to select class representatives for the Geography Bee.
“Through a full morning of challenging questions testing knowledge of local, state, national, and world geography, we came back in the afternoon to a group of 28 strong finishers,” explained Ann Donaldson, the social studies chairperson at Grand Avenue. “The last round was much more challenging, but many of the contestants held on to field another few questions.”
Winners were: Eric Shi (first place), Lucas Chan (second place) and Dru Das (third place)
