The NCS Geography Bee was held in the gym on Wednesday, January 13, 2016.
Students in 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8th grades competed in the event.
Participants were first chosen within their classrooms. Madelyn W and Gwen W represented 4th grade; Garrett H and Alden H, 5th; Maddox T and William S, 6th; Scott P and Madison V, 7th, and the 8th grade was represented by Andrew C and Natalie B. All participants bravely met the challenge in front of an enthusiastic and supportive crowd of spectators!
The championship round came down between 6th graders Maddox T (pictured left) and William S (right).
The 2016 winner of the NCS National Geographic Geography Bee is Maddox T!
Maddox proceeds to the next level of the National Geographic geography competition by taking a written test. Depending upon the results, Maddox could qualify to attend the state bee to be held in April.
Students rising to the national competition will attend the National Geographic Bee in Washington DC. The ultimate winner receives a $50,000 scholarship.
