Jordan Miller
2019 MAMS Geography Bee Champion

On Tuesday, January 8, 2019, ten Middle School students went participated in the annual National Geographic Geography Bee at MAMS. The students were awarded a spot in the Geo Bee by placing in the top 10 scores on a geography test taken by the entire student body.

Round after round students answered questions about mountain ranges, bodies of water, capitol cities and more. After seven students were eliminated, RJ Gomboc, Jade Lesisko and Jordan Miller remained. Jade answered her next question incorrectly and was named the 3rd place winner. RJ and Jordan entered the head-to-head championship round. As the questions increased in difficulty, RJ and Jordan searched their memories for correct answers. Finally, several rounds in, a body of water stumped RJ and Jordan produced the correct answer and was named the 2019 MAMS Geography Bee champion.

In the next round of competition, Jordan will take a written test in hopes of qualifying for additional competitions versus area middle school students.
