Geography Bee Winner Selected at La Vista Junior High and Papillion Junior High

Body


            What independent country is located entirely within the city of Rome?  What is the name of one of the two landlocked countries that border India to the north? These questions are just two of the questions that La Vista Junior High seventh grade student Sheehan Kreifels and Papillion Junior High eighth grade student Jace Miller answered correctly to win the National Geography Bee at their school. 

            Nearly 1700 students at both schools took the preliminary test for the school-wide geography competition during their social studies classes in November.  Approximately the top 25 students from both schools in the preliminary test were eligible to compete in the final school rounds.  These 25 students gathered in their school libraries last week for a geography bee. Students competed one-on-one through several rounds of geography questions on such varied categories as U.S. and state geography, U.S. and world capital cities, continents, and international cultural geography.

Sheehan and Jace now have the opportunity to take a 60 question qualifying test. If their score qualifies they will compete in the Nebraska state geography bee on Friday, March 27th.
