Geography Bee

Ten students from grades six through eight participated in the third annual geo bee

Porter Ridge Middle School held its 3rd annual National Geographic Geography Bee on Friday, January 21. All Social Studies teachers held bees in their classes and from there the 10 school finalists were selected. The 2 students that made it to the Championship round were William Spence and Nick Trapasso. The Championship round was VERY close and Nick Trapasso was the winner. The winner completed a 70 question multiple choice answer test that was mailed off to the National Geographic headquarters in Washington, D.C. The top 100 scorers in North Carolina will be announced in early March by mail and the state level competition will take place in early April. Good luck Nick and congratulations to all of our finalists!
