On the afternoon of Wednesday, Jan. 11, eight students competed in the annual Immaculate Conception Grade School Geography Bee. The competition took place in the IC campus gymnasium before an audience of fifth-, sixth-, seventh- and eighth-grade students, faculty, staff and parents. The eight contestants won geography bees in each of their respective fifth-, sixth-, seventh- and eighth-grade social studies classes.
After being read the rules of the contest, the students were asked national and international geography questions. Once a contestant answered two questions incorrectly, he or she was eliminated from the competition. First place was won by a fifth-grader and second place by an eighth-grader.
