Middle School Geography Bee Winner advances to the National Geographic Bee
The BMS Geography Bee was held in January in 3 rounds and gave 7th and 8th grade students a chance to show their knowledge of world geography. After all students participated in round one, 40 students competed in a written second round.
In the final round, the remaining 15 students competed against one another for the title of 2014 Champion. Eighth grader Nick Bowers became the winner of this year’s BMS Geography Bee. Nick took a written test to qualify for the State Geography Bee, and he became one of approximately 100 students to participate in this competition. He competes at the Ohio Statehouse on April 4th. If he moves on from the State Level, Nick has a chance to participate in the National competition, where the 1st prize is a $25,000 scholarship.
Congratulations and Best Wishes to Nick!
