Geography Bee Winners

Kristen Van De Graff

Salem Jr. High just completed our first annual National Geographic Geography Bee. Thirty three eighth grade students qualified to participate in our school bee. After 2.5 hours of rigorous geographical questioning the winners were determined! Aubrey Tasker took third, Kaitlyn Mehl took second and Bradley Barben took first place. Bradley will move on in the competition by taking the state qualifying test for the chance to compete in the state geography bee later this semester. Winners of the state geography bee will compete in a national geography bee in Washington D.C.
