Each fifth and sixth grade Social Studies class participated in a preliminary bee to determine class winners. The top ten students then went on to the Final Round. Sixth graders Bradley Lund and Gus Milhizer then advanced to the Championship Round.
This is Bradley’s second year as winner of the National Geographic Bee at DIS. Bradley must make a qualifying score on the written test portion of the test to qualify for the state level competition. That contest will be held on Friday, April 4.
