And the Winner of the Local Geography Bee Is...

Isn't the medal lovely?  



Here's the proof it was recently won at the local level...



My fourteen year old daughter won THIRD place!



My twelve year old son won FIRST place!



After the competition ds took a seventy question test that gets mailed in to the National Geography Bee in Washington DC. The top 100 in Texas will be notified in March, that they get to compete at the State level in April in order to choose finalists for the National Geography Bee in Washington DC in May!

  4. Yay for you and your kiddos!! That's wonderful. I love being able to teach anytime, anywhere. I am into geography too as are my children, so I'll have to look up geography bees and see if it would be a good fit for my bunch.

    On another note, thank you so very much for your kind comments about Jana. Who could believe cyber-friends can be soooooooo good!

    Blessings to you,
