HMS Geo Bee

Elias Rich, an 8th grade student at HMS, won the school competition of the National Geographic Bee on Wednesday, January 21st; Elias will now have a chance at a $50,000 college scholarship. Our HMS school Geo Bee was the first round in the 27th annual National Geographic Bee.

Thousands of schools around the United States and in the five territories are participating in the 2015 Bee. The school champions, including Elias Rich, will take a written test; up to 100 of the top scorers on that test in each state will then be eligible to compete in their state Bee on March 27, 2015.

Congratulations are extended to Elias and the following school finalists for their hard work leading up to the Bee, and their inspiring efforts during the school Bee:

Seamus Donegan, Will Giese, David Hattan, Dan LaMourie, Will Moffatt, Lulu Rasor, Lucy Shamel (runner up), and Sophia Solmos.

Mrs. Newick organized and facilitated the school Bee. Ms. Adler and Mrs. Vicenzi served as judges.
