Geography Bee Winner Will Head to D.C.
COLUMBIA - One hundred of the best geography students in Missouri gathered in Columbia Thursday for the regional contest of the 2011 national geography bee.
Students participated in preliminary rounds in different groups. Only ten of them were able to survive for the semi-final.
Some students were sad to lose in the preliminary, but some felt differently. "I'm proud that I even made it here. So, you know. I'm pretty satisfied," said seventh grader Patrick Smith. Chris Winston from Crestview Middle School in Chesterfield won the regional and will go on to the national competition.
