The 2016 Maine National Geographic Bee was hosted by the University of Maine Farmington and sponsored by the National Geographic Society on April 1, 2016. One hundred Maine students who won their school bee and passed a qualifying test participated in the competition.
Evan Lucca, a seventh grader, represented HMS at this event. He was the top student in his preliminary round and became one of the ten finalists in the final competition. Evan is to be congratulated for his outstanding performance. Thousands of schools around the United States and in the five U.S. territories participated in the 28th annual National Geographic Bee this year. Congratulations, Evan!
