Providence Geography Bee 2014
Providence's top three Geography Bee students were Drew Messick, Scott Raybourn, and Laurel Wood.
On January 13, Providence hosted its Geography Bee with 10 students from Class Four through Class Eight in the new gym. The competition was intense as the students recalled geographical knowledge of states, bodies of water and countries. For the final three questions, two competitors remained: Scott Raybourn, Class Seven, and Drew Messick, Class Five.
The winning question: “The Taklimakan Desert, home to the Uyghur people, is located north of the Kunlun Mountains in which Asian country? For the second year in a row, Scott Raybourn won with the correct answer of “China.” Drew Messick finished in second place, and Laurel Wood, Class Seven, finished in third place.
