SMS Students Compete in Geography Bee

Southern Middle School students recently competed in a school geography bee.  This was the first level of competition of the National Geographic Bee, a program of the National Geographic Society.


Lachlan Gemmill Edwards earned first place as the Southern Middle School Geographic Bee Champion.  Chase Eckert was the second place winner and Theodore Hill was the third place winner in the school competition.


The National Geographic Bee is a nationwide competition for students in grades four through eight.  Up to 100 of the top test scorers in each state become eligible to compete in their state geography bee.  Gemmill Edwards will take a qualifier test in January to see if he qualifies for the PA State competition.
