On Wednesday, January 29, 2020 29 students from Patton Middle School participated in the school competition of the National Geographic Society GeoBee. First place was awarded to Collin Hu - 6th grade, 2nd place was awarded to Ismaeel Qureshi - 7th grade, 3rd place to Thomas Gibson - 7th grade, and 4th place to Katie Connelly - 6th grade.
The school competition is the first round in the annual National Geographic GeoBee, a geography competition designed to inspire and reward students’ curiosity about the world. Questions cover not only geography, but also ancient and world civilizations, cultures and physical features.
The champion of CF Patton’s GeoBee, Collin Hu will advance to the next level of competition, a qualifying test to determine state competitors. Up to 100 of the top test scorers in each state become eligible to compete in their State GeoBee.
Collin won his elementary school competition last year and qualified for the state GeoBee. Let’s wish Collin continued success as he attempts to qualify again this year!!
