The Weathersfield School’s top nine National Geographic Bee’s finalists: eighth graders Madison Knight, Alicia Ostrom, and Aria Yuengling; seventh graders Zed McNaughton, Brody Perham, Layne Watkins, and Carson Williams; sixth grader Madison Lawyer; and fifth grader Brooke Hindinger competed in a school-wide Geography Bee on Thursday, December 7, 2017. The two finalists, Carson Williams and Brooke Hindinger competed in the championship round until the winner was determined. Brooke Hindinger, a fifth grade student here at WS, won the school-level competition of the National Geographic Bee. She will advance to the next level of the competition, a written examination to determine eligibility as a state competitor. The state competition will be held on Friday, April 6, 2018. The state champion will then have his/her transportation expenses and accommodations paid for by the Bee, to participate in the Bee’s national championship rounds May 20 - 23, 2018 in Washington, D.C. Thanks to all the competitors, moderator Ginger Wimberg, judges/timer Kathy Dana, and Nathalie Whitney. Good luck, Brooke!
