Seventh Grader’s Answer “Chile” Earns Her First Place In St. Michael’s Country Day School Geography Bee
St. Michael’s fourth through eighth graders competed in the school finals for the National Geography Bee this morning.
Seventh grader Ainsley Weber was the winner, and will participate in the statewide competition in Providence later this Spring.
Placement in the finals is determined in preliminary rounds held in the classrooms in December.
The Geography Bee is an annual event at St. Michael’s and is sponsored by the National Geographic Society. The ten finalists that make it past the preliminary rounds answer questions that include a mix of economic, social, and historical themes at a whole school assembly.
