Lincoln Geography Bee

Published: January 13, 2017

Lincoln Elementary conducted its annual Geography Bee on Thursday, January 12, 2017.  After several rounds of questions, sixth grader Makenna Gill was crowned the Geography Bee champion, winning for the second straight year.  Fourth grader Miles Leman was our runner up, and fourth grader Ewan MacRitchie placed third.

Some interesting facts about this year's Lincoln Geography Bee:
-There were 6 regular rounds to determine the 3rd place winner (Ewan MacRitchie), and the two finalists. Then the Championship round (between Miles Leman and Makenna Gill) was a series of three questions, before going into the tiebreaker, which lasted 13 rounds.
-The final question which Makenna answered correctly and Miles did not was “Java, one of the world's most densely populated islands, includes the city of Jakarta. This is the capital of which country?” Correct answer was “Indonesia”.
-Ten students compete in the school bee. Students qualify for the school bee by winning their classroom bee. There are also two “wild-card” spots available to the two highest scorers who did not win their classroom bee.
-In the coming weeks, Makenna will take an online test through the National Geographic site. Her scores will be processed and we should receive them in early March. Up to 100 of the top scorers from Illinois will then compete at a state-level competition. The winner of each state bee then competes at the National Bee in Washington D.C. in May, with expenses paid for the trip and a $50,000 grand prize.
Pictures from Thursday's Bee included:
-Champion Makenna Gill, with her parents Tom and Chris Gill, along with younger brother Bo, who also attends Lincoln.
-Runner Up Miles Leman, supported at the Bee by his mom Amanda Leman and his grandma, Sue Zimmerman. 
-Our competitors, which included:
Front:  Ewan MacRitchie, Ethan Hutchcraft, Quinn Weber, Makenna Gill, Miles Leman.
Back: Drew Dyche, Tobias Rupp, Marcelo Salazar, Connor Hillyard, Chase Sauder, and Bee Coordinator, DJ Rudd.
