The birthplace of revolutionary figure Simon Bolivar is located in Caracas in which South American country?
That was one of the many questions posed to geography bee participants on January 4 in Wakefield Country Day School’s pursuit to send an Owl to the annual National Geographic Bee Championship. In the competition, fifth-grade teacher Mrs. Perry, the organizer of the event, read aloud questions challenging each participant’s knowledge of U.S. and world geography. Students were also required to read a map and answer associated questions.
Connor Lummis was the runner-up in the competition, and eighth-grader Logan Marks won the WCDS championship round. Next he will take an online state qualifying test to advance to the Virginia Bee.
