Louis M. Klein Middle School held a preliminary competition to send one of their 7th graders on a quest for the National Geography Bee. The competition, held Friday, January 12th saw twelve 7th grade students compete in the LMK final competition. The students were chosen from preliminary events held in their Social Studies classes.
The finalists were:
After numerous rounds of suspense-filled competition, only Jack Eiff and Mason Kruger remained. Mason correctly identified the Japanese island of Honshu as being connected by the Seikan Tunnel to the island of Hokkaido to win the school bee!
Mason has earned the right to advance to the next level of the competition, which is a written examination. If all goes well with the written test, he will have the opportunity to compete at the state level. Congratulations to all the contestants and best of luck to Mason!
