National Geographic Bee


Could you answer the following questions?

  • Which Nordic capital was built on islands where the Baltic Sea meets Lake Malaren?

Each year thousands of schools in the United States, including DeMotte Christian, participate in the National Geographic Bee. The contest is designed to inspire students to be curious about the world. The above questions are just a couple of examples of the types of questions that were asked of fourth through eighth grade class representatives who participated in the January 18, 2018 Bee.

Students answered a variety of individual and group questions as they progressed through the competition.
Joshua de Jong came in 1st place after 5 Tiebreaker questions!
Arthur Walstra came in 2nd!
Brooklyn Musch and Jocelyn Ruvalcabla tied for 3rd!
Great job everyone!
