GeoBee

The Weathersfield School’s Top 10 National Geographic GeoBee’s finalists: Jameson Gaito, Dory Hindinger, Tori McNamara, Ryan Page, and Anneka Yuengling, all 8th graders; Tanner Crane, Brooke Hindinger, Myra McNaughton, and Patrick Vollmann, all 7th graders; and a 6th grader, Addison Chase competed in a school-wide GeoBee on Thursday, December 12th, 2019. The two finalists, Ryan Page and Anneka Yuengling, competed in the championship round until the winner was determined. Ryan Page, an eighth grade student, won the school-level competition of the National Geographic GeoBee. He will advance to the next level of the competition, an online qualifying test to determine eligibility as a state competitor. The state competition will be held on Friday, March 27, 2020. The Bee will pay the transportation and accommodation expenses to Washington, D.C., for the state champion to participate in the Bee’s national championship rounds, Spring 2020. Thanks to all the competitors, moderator Ginger Wimberg, judge/timer Kathy Dana, room set up and clean up by Bryan Woodbury and Kathy Dana, and computer/projector set up by Mike Walker. What a competition! Awesome job by all of the competitors! Good luck,Ryan!
