LEARNING GEOGRAPHY

St. Amelia junior high students Alex Zulia, left, Josie Middione and Adam Binner participate in a recent National Geographic Geography Bee. The process began in December with a contest in each social studies class. The top two or three finishers in each class moved on to the school bee on Jan. 10. From this final group of 24 students, Middione, in the seventh grade, won. She will move on to take the statewide written test. Winners in each state move on to the National Geographic Geography finals in Washington, D.C., later this year. Binner and Zulia were the runners-up.
